Find out what an African elephant has in common with a wildebeest. Learn what sets an African elephant apart from a snow leopard. Readers will compare and contrast key traits of African elephants--their appearance, behavior, habitat, and life cycle--to traits of other mammals. Charts and sidebars support key ideas and provide details. Through gathering information about similarities and differences, readers will make connections and draw conclusions about what makes this animal a mammal and how mammals are alike and different from each other.
