African Elephants at Tiergarten Schönbrunn (Vienna Zoo - Austria)

African elephants are the world's largest terrestrial animals. The trunk, an extension of the upper lip and nose, is used for communication and handling objects including food. African elephants have 2 opposing extensions at its end, in contrast to the Asian elephant which only has one.
The other notable feature of African elephants is their very large ears, which allow them to radiate excess heat. African elephants are found in Eastern, Southern and West Africa, in dense forests, mopane and miombo woodlands, Sahelian scrub or deserts.
