Caption: African elephant. Charging African elephant (Loxodonta africana). The elephant is displaying this aggressive behaviour in response to a perceived threat to itself or its herd. Elephants can reach speeds of up to 40 km/h when charging. These are the largest and heaviest land animals, sometimes weighing over 7000 kilograms. They eat grass, bark and leaves, and can consume as much as 225 kilograms of food in a day. African elephants live in large herds throughout eastern and southern Africa. Their habitat ranges from thick jungle to savannah. These mammals may live to be 70 years old. Photographed in Tsavo National Park, Kenya.
