Elephants are the largest animal that lives on land. They are HUGE! A male elephant can stand 12 feet (3.75 metres) tall at the shoulders. It can weigh up to 26,000 pounds (12,000 kg). That means one elephant can weigh as much as 13 small trucks! Elephants have four very strong legs. Their legs are like posts.
