Stuff that Weighs More than Me: Elephant

Elephants are big.  REALLY big.  In current terms, they are the largest land animal.  I mean, these puppies weigh 200 – 250 lbs. when they’re born!  And they can run pretty fast too.  (Good thing I got a head start!)  Here’s the stats:

Height: Up to 13 ft.
Daily Food Intake: Hundreds of pounds
Daily Water Intake: About 50 gallons
Weight: Up to about 8 tons

Conclusion: An elephant weighs more than me.  However, I understand some of them can still do ballet: (Edna the Elephant).

P.S. I probably won’t be seeing any elephants on my upcoming camping trip.  But I’ll be sure to let you know what interesting critters I do see…
