Middle Earth Elves are characters that can be seen in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. These elves are different than other elves because they are conceived and then born about twelve months later. They are fast developers because they speak and move during their first year. They can also walk soon. Fortunately, they can live for hundreds of years. Even though some of the activities they do are primarily gender-based activities like cleaning is mainly done by the female elves and chopping wood is done by the male elves. However, these elves believe in strict equality between males and females.
