Elephants at Kaziranga National Park, Assam, India
Kaziranga National Park, Assam and its surrounding landscape arguably holds the most critical population of elephants in Northeast India. Elephants are megaherbivores and they need to eat about 150+ kg of plant matter per day. Interesting to note is whilst they graze on the tall grasses they uproot entire clumps and actually dust them skillfully and consume the fresh leave tops whilst discarding the roots.
