Describe an interesting animal you know about.
You should say:
- what animal it is
- how you know about this animal
- where they are found
and describe what facts about this animal do you find most interesting.
It takes some special characters and the courage to learn about animals and be around them. Of course, while I never claim to have such special characters or courage, I find a few animals interesting enough to talk about, and elephant happens to be just one of them.
I am pretty sure that I don’t really need to introduce elephant anew as we all happen to know that it is the second-largest mammals in the world, right after the blue whale. Depending on which part of the world an animal comes from, their weights can vary from anywhere between 2700 kg to 6000 kg. They can also be of varied length and height. For example, the Length of an Asian elephant can be anywhere between 5.5 – 6.5 m while the height of an African bush elephant can be 3.2 m (meters).
By the way, I have learned a great deal about this animal by visiting a local animal zoo in my town when the authority has kept varieties of elephants from different parts of the world. However, while zoos are a great place to learn and get ideas about how the elephants really look or behave, they are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia and are also found in different habitats, including savannahs, forests, deserts, and marshes. And as far as the diets of elephants are concerned, they eat between 149 and 169 kg of vegetation daily while consuming grasses, small plants, bushes, fruit, twigs, tree bark, and roots. However, a large number of these large mammals is being killed today all over the world for their ivory.
Anyway, I find elephants very interesting because even though they are such strong animals, they can be just as emotional as humans. In fact, elephants are found to be crying when they are hurt or lose their baby calves. In fact, many research shows that elephants are very intelligent and social animals which are drawn to human rather easily. Besides, elephants are also known to have reconciled with each other after conflicts among them.
