African Bush Elephant

Loxodonta africana

The largest species of elephant 
The biggest animal on land
Rolling by the riverside
On the wet sand

Weighing 6,000 kilograms
Munching on a branch, 13' tall
Before joining the herd
With a loud trumpeting call

To keep themselves cool
On their bodies, some mud they smear
Before walking off to the forest
Among the trees, they disappear

But this species is now endangered
In deforested areas, they can't survive
We must start conserving
To keep these giants alive
