Elephants are herbivores, just like other herbivores, they do not eat meat. Their digestive tract is not structured to digest meat. Elephants eat mostly grass, they also eat barks, roots, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds.
They spend about two - third of their day (about 16 hours) searching for food to eat.
Elephant eat up to 200kg of food and drink up to 50 gallons of water a day. About 50% of this food leaves their body undigested. They eat this large amount of food because their stomach is not efficient to digest all the food. Their blunt teeth is structured for grinding and chewing food and not for tearing.
