Life Cycle of the Elephant
  1. Curios Fact: It is the only animal with the best memory.
    1. The baby: stage lasts from birth until the elephant is weaned from its mother´s milk. This occurs between the ages of 5 and 10.
      1. Curious Fact: In fact, during birth, a group of female elephants can wait for the mother who is in labor to finish her labor to welcome the newborn into the world. Once born, the elephant is greeted by the loud belllows and sounds of the females awaiting his arrival.
        1. The gestion of elephants lasts around 22 and 24 months, almost two years! The pregnancy is so long, probably due to the large size of the elephant and the slow development of the fetus of the this animal. During the pregnancy of the elephant the calf reaches 100 or 150 kilograms and is 90 centimeters tall, and although they eat solid food at six months, they willl continue to drink milk from their mother for three or four years.
          1. Adolescence: begins with weaning and ends at age 17, when the elephant reaches sexual maturity.
            1. Adult: begins at age 18.
              1. Characteristics: Babies: are totally dependent on their mothers. The mother feeds, cleans and helps them in migration until they are 3 to 5 years old, when they begin to learn to be independent. Adolescent: elephants do not participate in mating, but instead find their place in the herd or are referred to another. Adult: an elephant lives to age 70 in a structured social society.
                1. Elephants are the largest land animals in existence. There are three species: African Bush, African Forest and Asian elephants. The life cycle of the elephant is divided into three stages: baby, adolescent and adult.
                  1. When an elephant is baby, as it is blind, its predators make it easier for them to eat them, so the mothers have to take great care of their young.
