Elephants are the largest mammals on Earth--and some of the smartest, too. An elephant head and face drawing introduces you to these incredible animals.

If you've never seen an elephant in person, ask your parents or guardian to take you to a zoo that cares for elephants.

Since they're so big, elephants need lots of space to roam and hundreds of pounds of food each day. Zookeepers often give elephants toys, like balls, to keep them mentally stimulated.

In the wild, female elephants lead the herd and look after the calves. Male elephants tend to leave the herds and live by themselves.

If you were an elephant, would you rather stay with your family or strike it out on your own?

You can also read about elephants to learn what makes them so special. In the meantime, draw a cartoon elephant head and face to bring this mammal to life in your home.

This guide uses simple lines and shapes to create a realistic drawing. Sketch a baby elephant afterward to give your elephant a friend.
