Elephants consume grasses, small plants, bushes, fruit, twigs, tree bark, and roots. Nearly 80% of an elephant's day is spent feeding. Tree bark is a favorite food source for elephants. It contains calcium and roughage, which aids digestion.
Asian elephants are herbivores and will consume about 200 to 300 kilos of food per day and 150 liters of water. Elephants may be heavy animals, but they can run up to 15 miles per hour.
