The secret life of elephants: How much do elephants eat in a day? 

The amount of food that an older elephant needs in a day can vary depending on a number of factors, including the elephant’s size, age, health, and activity level. In general, elephants are known to be heavy eaters and can consume upwards of 300 pounds of food per day.

As elephants age, their nutritional needs may change. For example, older elephants may have a slower metabolism and may need fewer calories to maintain a healthy weight. It is important for the caretakers of older elephants to monitor the animal’s food intake and body condition and make adjustments to the diet as needed to ensure that the elephant is receiving the appropriate nutrition.

It is always best to consult with a veterinarian or animal nutritionist to determine the appropriate diet for an individual elephant, taking into account the animal’s age, size, and health status.
