The elephant is a big and strong animal measuring 3.50 meters for an adult and weighing at least 5 tons. It has a long trunk to defend itself and two ivory tusks. The elephant alone has nearly 100,000 muscles that can lift up to 270 mg. This animal represents strength. They’re also intelligent and social. They also play an important ecological role, shaping savanna and forest ecosystems. I love this animal because it’s the symbol of my country, Côte D’Ivoire.
