African Elephants can also grow to between 6 and 10 meters long. With tusks nearly z.5 meters in length and generally weigh between 50 and 120kg, which is about the same as as average
adult human. African Elephants have four molar teeth each weighing about 5.0 kg and measuring about 12 inches long. As the front pair of molars in the
mouth of the African Elephant wear out and drop out in pieces, the back pair shift forward and two new molars emerge in the back of the mouth. African Elephants replace their teeth six times during their lives but when it is between 40 to 60 years Of age, it no longer has teeth and will likely die of starvation, which is sadly a common cause of death of Elephants in the African wilderness.
