How much do elephants eat and drink?


Elephants in the wild consumes grass, leaves and such, with a high percentage of water, and may eat up to 300 kgs/day. In captivity they eat about 30 kg hay, 10 kg carrots or similar, and 5-10 kg of bread. Some zoos give a "breakfast" of different grains, about 3-10 kg. Also vitamin's, (especially A and D) minerals, (salt, calcium) and trace elements (such as Selenium) are often added. Depending on the temperature, they drink from 100 to 300 liters/day. Above 250 liters a day indicates something is wrong. Elephants suffering from TBC may drink upto 600 liters.
