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.
