NATIONAL ELEPHANT APPRECIATION DAY
National Elephant Appreciation Day is observed every year on September 22.
People of all ages are fascinated by elephants. They are larger than life and profoundly intelligent animals. The average lifespan of an elephant is 60 to 70 years, and they develop remarkably close family bonds. They are very playful animals who love to frolic in the water. Elephants are herbivorous animals who will eat almost any type of plant from grass to trees. In captivity, they are also very fond of cabbage, lettuce, bananas, apples and many other types of fruits and vegetables.
