Expressions and Equations with Sri Lankan Elephants


As herbivores, Sri Lankan elephants mainly eat grasses, leaves, shoots, barks, fruits, nuts, seeds, and other vegetation. In order to make sure they're eating the right amount each day, they need to do a lot of math—it takes a lot of food to feed an elephant that weighs upwards of 12,000 pounds!
