Elephant Poo Gifts
What goes in one end must come out the other....
Elephants of course are no exception. They each between 200 to 250kg of food every day at one end - and produce an enormous 50kg of dung at the other. And elephant dung matters.
Elephants eat seeds at one end, transport them around in their tummies in the middle and then "plant" them from their back end, sometimes as far as 57km. Elephant dung is rich in nutrients and that enables seeds to germinate and grow, giving a range of animals new habitats.
Their dung equals dinner. Dung beetles collect it and then store it for dung larvae. Honey badgers eat the dung beetle. Honey badgers thus need elephant dung.
