The African Elephant (Loxodonta africana) is the largest living land animal on Earth today. The females live in close-knit family groups made up of mothers, daughters, sisters, and aunts. These groups are led by the eldest female, or matriarch. Adult males, on the other hand, live mostly solitary lives. Individual elephants can live more than 70 years, and are known for their intelligence and memory. Tarangire National Park is famous for its dense herds of this spectacular creature, and visitors to the park are virtually guaranteed an up-close-and-personal experience.
