Above is a picture of a parade of elephants. These unique creatures are the largest land mammals on Earth! They make their homes mainly in sub-Sahara Africa and throughout the rain forest. They may be stereotypical to Africa, but they are a great symbol of the strength of this continent.
"Elephants need their elders African elephants live in a matriarchal society. A herd is led by the most knowledgeable female, usually the oldest because she's had the longest time to gather vital knowledge such as where to go for food and water and knowledge about how to respond to a variety of dangers, even those that haven't been a threat for decades."
