An adult elephant consumes about kg ( pounds) of food and litres (26 gallons) of water per day. These amounts can be double for a hungry and thirsty individual. Such consumption makes elephants an important ecological factor, because it substantially affects and even alters the ecosystems elephants live in. African elephants are the largest of all land animals, adult males weighing between 1, and 6, kg (2 and 7 tons/ 4, and 14, lb.). Females are smaller, weighing between 2, and 3, kg (3 and 4 tons/ 6, and 8, lb.). Shoulder height ranges between three and four m ( and ft.).

Despite these age-related illnesses, the elephant can live a long natural life if it is not poached or culled.
