Elephants are the biggest land animals. They are mammals. They are grey and have no hair. Their skin is thick and rough. They come from Africa and Asia. African elephants have very big ears and Asian elephants have small ears. They live in hot regions. The elephant has a very long nose, which is called a trunk and two long white teeth called tusks.
Elephants eat a lot of food they are herbivore, that means that they don’t eat meat. They eat leaves, grass, fruit and even trees. They eat around 140 kilos of food a day and drink 180 litres of water. A big elephant is over 3.5 metres tall and weighs 6000 kilos. Elephants love water and they are good swimmers. There are about 600,000 elephants. Nowadays they are in danger of becoming extinct because hunters kill for their ivory tusks which are used to make ornaments or necklaces.
Pandas are mammals. They live in jungles of China. We can find them in cold regions of jungle, but that doesn’t mean that they live in cold places. It is very hot and humid in the jungle. Pandas have got long black and white fur. They always look very sad. They grow up to 2 metres.Average adult weight is 100 to 115 kg. They eat bamboo, plants and sometimes fish. They can eat 38 kg of bamboo every day. There are less than 1000 left in the wild. The giant panda typically lives around 20 years in the wild. They are in danger of becoming extinct because people are destroying their habitat – the place where they live. People are cutting the forests to grow food and build houses. That’s why pandas can’t find a place to live. Pandas are also killed for their fur to make rugs.
A panda is also a symbol WWF organisation. This organisation tries to look after wild animals, plants and the place where they live.
A tiger is a mammal. It lives in hot and cold regions of Asian jungles. It is a big and dangerous cat. It is up to 3 metres long, that means this is the largest cat. It’s weight 306 kg. It has got a very strong and long body with orange, black and white fur. It has got a long tail and big teeth. It eats small mammals, fish and sometimes insects. It likes water and it can swim too. It is now in danger of becoming extinct because it is killed for its fur and for sport. Fur is used to make coats and rugs. It is also killed to make medicine. Sometimes natives wear its teeth to protect themselves from evil spirits.There are between 3000-4000 tigers. And tigers also have less and less space to live, because we destroy their habitat.
