Meet the largest land mammals; Elephant at Bali Safari!
Bali Safari Park homes Sumatran elephants and has made conservation efforts to keep these clever creatures around for a long time. Elephants are known to be the largest land mammals and live in large groups, which are led by the most experienced female in the group. Females are usually able to give birth at the age of 10 years to a single calf after a 22 month pregnancy period. They need roughly 200kg of food daily, including grass, bamboo, nuts, and fruit. They drink about 150 liters of water per day.

Elephants have a very strong sense of smell. Sadly, Sumatra's deforestation rate is among the highest in Southeast Asia and has taken away the primary food source for the Sumatran elephants. Thus, started the conflict between wild elephants and humans in Sumatra.
