Elephants

Incredible dimensions

The elephant is an animal holding all the records. With a weight of more than 6 tonnes for the imposing African male, observed longevity of 70 years for the eldest individuals, or even the 150,000 muscles in its trunk, elephants are behemoths full of resources. In spite of such large measurements, elephants have great sensitivity and surprising dexterity. Their feet allow them to feel vibrations in the ground, even minute ones, thanks to which they can find water underground.

Towards an evolution of no defence?

The poaching of specimens with the greatest defence has caused a higher mortality among these individuals and therefore a rarity in their genes. Recently, it has been noted that many of the young are born and grow up with few, even non-existent, defences. So, has Man maybe indirectly induced the evolution of this animal?
