From Wikipedia:

Elephants are the largest living land animals on Earth today.[7] The elephant's gestation period is 22 months, the longest of any land animal.[8] At birth, an elephant calf typically weighs 105 kilograms (230 lb).[8] They typically live for 50 to 70 years, but the oldest recorded elephant lived for 82 years.[9] The largest elephant ever recorded was shot in Angola in 1974. [10][11] This male weighed about 10,900 kg (24,000 lb) with a shoulder height of 3.96 metres (13.0 ft).[12] The smallest elephants, about the size of a calf or a large pig, were a prehistoric species that lived on the island of Crete during the Pleistoceneepoch.[13]

Elephants are a symbol of wisdom in Asian cultures and are famed for their memory and intelligence; their intelligence level is thought to be comparable to that of dolphins[14][15][16][17] and primates.[18][19] Aristotle once said the elephant was "the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind."[20] The word "elephant" has its origins in the Greek ἐλέφας, meaning "ivory" or "elephant".[21]
