Asian Elephant GLE’s Second Grade: 27. Match the appropriate food source and habitat for a variety of animals (e.g., cows/grass/field, fish/tadpoles/water) (LS-E-A1) 30. Identify physical characteristics of organisms (e.g., worms, amphibians, plants) (LS- E-A4) The elephant is Earth's largest land animal, although the Asian elephant is slightly smaller than its African cousin. Asian elephants can be identified by their smaller, rounded ears. An elephant's trunk is actually a long nose with many functions. It is used for smelling, breathing, trumpeting, drinking, and also for grabbing things— especially a potential meal. The trunk alone contains about 100,000 different muscles. Asian elephants have a fingerlike feature on the end of their trunk that they can use to grab small items. Elephants use their tusks to dig for roots and water, strip bark from trees, and even fight each other. Elephants eat roots, grasses, fruit, and bark, and they eat a lot of these things.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
