  • Funny Elephant Eating Dry Foliage - Leaf Blower

    Problems with dry leaves in your garden? Forget the leaf blower. You need one of these. Watch this funny elephant helping clean up his enclosure.

    This video was shot at the Howletts Zoo. On a more serious note, this elephant might be lacking in a varied diet and it looks like she is trying to top up on some much needed minerals. Or possibly this funny elephant just has a taste for weird stuff.

    In actual fact, little is known about the feeding habits of free-ranging elephants. Most modern Zoos are using horse feeding charts and extrapolating the proportions to match the enormous weight of elephants (from 1.8 to 5 tons). The few field studies that are out there show that elephants have a varied diet supplemented both by browsing and grazing behaviour. One such study showed that elephants consume 36 different vegetation-based foodstuffs ranging from tree leaves to fruits and roots.
