What is the largest living land mammal?The largest land mammal living today is the African Elephant. A fully grown male measures 11 feet high at the shoulders and may weigh over 6 tons. It eats 700 pounds of vegetations and drinks over 50 gallons of water in a day, its trunk having a capacity of 1.5 gallons. It can walk at 4 miles an hour, which is about as fast as a man can walk, but is can run at an impressive 30 miles an hour but is unable to jump the smallest of obstacles.

The Indian Elephant has smaller ears, a more rounded back, a trunk with one ‘finger’ at the end (rather than two), a domed forehead and a smaller overall size.
