Larger than life with imposing ivory tusks and distinctive long trunks, elephants are surely among the most beloved creatures on the planet. Their trunks are used in several ways: for breathing, lifting water into their mouths, grasping objects, and making sounds. Another fun fact: elephants love water! They like to dive into water, swim, and take the weight off. National Geographic Elephants features an incomparable collection of images taken by wildlife photographers. Each outstanding image is accompanied by a large grid with moon phases and international holidays. National Geographic supports vital work in conservation, research, exploration, and education. The calendar includes a 3-year at-a-glance page and is earth friendly, printed with soya-based inks on FSC certified paper.
