#AtoZChallenge – Elephant

Elephants are large mammals that are found in Africa and Asia. As their habitats suggest, they are known by the areas they live in.

Their large ear flaps help dissipate heat through the capillaries that carry the heated blood away from the animal’s body and out into the air.
