WORD OF THE DAY: enormous adj.

Definition: 1. greatly exceeding the common size, extent, amount, or degree; huge; immense: an enormous mansion, 2. outrageous or atrocious

Example: My meal is enormous! I can’t possibly eat the whole thing!

Synonyms: gigantic, tremendous, huge

FACT OF THE DAY:   Elephants! There are two kinds of elephant and it’s easy to tell them apart. The African elephant has bigger ears and a sloping forehead. It also has four toenails on its front foot. The Asian elephant has five toenails and a bulgy, rounded forehead. African elephants are larger and more fierce than elephants from Asia. The biggest elephants weigh about 14,000 pounds! Big male elephants eat about five hundred pounds of food every day! They like all sorts of fruits, vegetables, leaves & bark. The Asian elephant reaches up to break off tree branches, but the African elephant is more likely to knock over the whole tree.  When an elephant is 20 years old, it is grown up, and may live more than 70 years in the wild. A newborn elephant weighs about 200 pounds and, when born, it’s body is covered with fuzzy hair. As it grows up, the calf will grow long tusks and it will lose most of its hair. Elephants travel is herds with 10-50 in a herd; they are usually led by an old and wise female called a cow. As they travel through the jungle, they go in a single file. If they are angry or frightened, they can reach a speed of 25 mph. Elephants are called pachyderms, which means “having a thick skin”, but this thick skin doesn’t have a layer of fat under it to keep them warm. This is why they sometimes get stomachaches in cold weather.
