FACTS ABOUT ELEPHANTS:

elephant

• Fully grown Thai elephants can weigh between 2.5 and 4 tonnes.

• Their average height is between 2 and 3 metres at the shoulder.

• They are vegetarian and especially enjoy bamboo and sugar cane.

• An elephant’s trunk is an elongation of the upper lip, containing
30 – 40,000 muscles but no bones.

• Elephants only sleep for three to four hours a night – most of
the time they sleep standing up, only lying down for about one hour.

• Elephants are highly social and communicate through sound,
both audible and sub-sonic, as well as touch and smell.

• Young elephants are very tactile and enjoy rough games with
one another.

• Gestation period is between 18 and 22 months.

• Elephants, especially babies, are hairier than you think!

• In Asian elephants, only the males grow tusks – the females
have smaller ivories called ‘tushes’ or ’kanai’ (in Thai language).
In Thailand, many males do not have tusks either.

• In the wild, mature males tend to be solitary. Females live in
herds governed by a matriarch in a strong social and friendship
based society.

• Mahout’ is an Indian word used in Thailand for convenience,
while the actual Thai phrase used for someone who has control
of his own elephant is ‘Kwann Chang’.
