Elephants adapt to their environment through structural and behavioural modifications. Elephants do not have sweat glands, they use their ears which has evolved over time to reduce the heat. They do this by flapping their ears.

Elephants have short neck and long legs, it would be difficult for them to use their mouth to pick up food from the ground, they use their long trunk to pick up food and also to drink water. The trunk is also use to sense touch and smell.

Their trunk is use for digging the ground in search of food for survival. They have teeth that are shaped for grinding and chewing plants.

Elephants also move in groups in order to protect one another in times of danger.
