Weighing anywhere from 5,000 to 14,000 pounds, and standing between 7 to 14 feet tall, African Elephants are the largest land mammals in the world. With enormous, wrinkled bodies, large floppy ears that resemble the shape of their home continent, and huge trunks that by themselves contain thousands of different muscles, one thing is for sure: these massive creatures are pretty hard to miss. While the species is threatened in the wild, Zoo Miami is the home of two female African Elephants, Peggy and Mabel. Peggy was born in Botswana and is now 37 years old. She tends to be the more dominant of the pair, taking charge and being more outgoing than Mabel. Sweet and captivating, Peggy definitely loves when the spotlight is on her. Her pal, Mabel, is also from Botswana and is 37 years old. While she is not as dominant as Peggy, Mabel still loves to get attention, and she is very intelligent and mature. She is calm and patient when working with zookeepers and is very engaged when it comes to participating in her enrichment activities.
