ELEPHANTS is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the nature and the life cycle of one of the Earth's most majestic creatures. The largest of land mammals, the elephant is today a threatened species in some parts of the world. Trace the ancient, respected lineage of this amazing animal. Learn the traits and characteristics of both the African and the Indian elephant as they exist in the wild today. Discover how to recognize and identify the African and Indian species, the feeding and breeding practices of the Indian work elephant as well as the wild African plains elephant, the leading role of the elephant matriarch in a group's natural hierarchy, and the myth surrounding the elephant graveyard. Entertaining and informative, ELEPHANTS is just one title from the series Animals in the Wild. Anyone seeking a better understanding of the animal kingdom, especially these majestic creatures, will enjoy this book and the entire series. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources.
