Tusker Territory - Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom
Of all the behemoths that once roamed the earth, only the elephant is left for us to marvel about. And marvel we should for here's an animal that weights 10 tons, yet leaves an imprint only a half-inch deep when walking on soft sand...can eat 200 pounds of hay a day, drink 50 gallons of water at one go, grow to be 13 feet tall at the shoulder, yet can use its trunk so delicately it can pick a flower off the ground without crushing it. But many questions about this animal remain unanswered. By literally living with a family of elephants in Bechuanaland, Africa, we observe their fascinating life.
