Stamps with the theme Elephants
Elephants are the largest land animals. There are three known species of elephants: the African bush elephant, the African forest elephant and the Indian elephant. The average age of an elephant is 50 to 70 years. The gestation period is 22 months, the longest of any land animal. At birth it is common for an elephant calf to weigh 120 kilograms.
