You probably already know that the elephant is the largest land animal found on Earth, but did you know that some species of elephants are bigger than the others? The African bush elephant or African Savannah elephant is larger than its Asian counterpart and has the distinction of being the largest (and heaviest) land animal on Earth. Adult males reach a height of 4 metres and weigh up to 6000 kg!

African bush elephants prefer open savannah or grasslands and are found in southern and eastern African countries like Botswana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Namibia, Zambia and South Africa. They are easily distinguishable from Asian elephants by their larger, fan-shaped ears and front legs.
