African Elephant- Loxodonta Africana

Elephants are a keystone species meaning that they influence the health functioning of eco systems and even the survival of particular species. When elephant bring down trees when they feed, that provides supplementary food for other wildlife which otherwise can not reach for those branches to feed.

Elephants practise a matriarchal society, all females in the herd are related with their successive off springs. The oldest cow, known as the matriarch leads the herd. The matriarch being oldest has the broadest knowledge, she will use this to lead the herd to the traditional sources of water and food during different seasons and times of hardship.
