2019 1 Oz Silver South Africa Big Five VOLTAIC ELEPHANT KRUGERRAND Coin, 24K GOLD. Elephantsare large mammals of the family Elephantidae in the order Proboscidea. Three species are currently recognised: theAfrican bush elephant(Loxodonta africana), theAfrican forest elephantL. Cyclotis, and theAsian elephant(Elephas maximus). Elephants are scattered throughoutsub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, andSoutheast Asia. Elephantidae is the only surviving family of the order Proboscidea; other, now extinct, members of the order includedeinotheres, gomphotheres, mastodons, anancidsandstegodontids; Elephantidae itself also contains several now extinct groups, such as themammothsandstraight-tusked elephants. All elephants have several distinctive features, the most notable of which is a long trunk (also called aproboscis), used for many purposes, particularly breathing, lifting water, and grasping objects. The irincisorsgrow into tusks, which can serve as weapons and as tools for moving objects and digging. Elephants’ large ear flaps help to control their body temperature. Theirpillar-like legs can carry their great weight. African elephants have larger ears and concave backs while Asian elephants have smaller ears and convex or level backs. Elephants are herbivorous and can be found in different habitats includingsavannahs, forests, deserts, andmarshes. They prefer to stay near water. They are considered to be akeystone speciesdue to their impact on their environments. Other animals tend to keep their distance from elephants while predators, such aslions, tigers, hyenas, and anywild dogs, usually target only young elephants (or “calves”). Elephants have afissionfusion societyin which multiple family groups come together to socialise. Females (“cows”) tend to live in family groups, which can consist of one female with her calves or several related females with offspring. The groups are led by an individual known as thematriarch, often the oldest cow. Face Value: 1 Rand. Weight: 1 Oz – 31.1g. Mintage: 250 Pcs Worldwide. Finish: 24K GOLD/ Colorized.
