How much milk do the young calves drink? How do elephants communicate? Find out the answers to these questions and learn many more fascinating facts about these incredible animals in this new addition to the Animal Lives series from QED. Each title in this appealing series takes an up-close look at a different creature, exploring habitat, conservation and animal adaptation, as well as looking at the life cycle of the particular animal and the way the young survive – often against tremendous odds.
