No, all elephants are herbivores. They do not eat other creatures, but that does not mean they are not dangerous!

They are not naturally aggressive towards people, but elephants will charge anything if it feels that it or their babies are threatened in any way. With the males reaching a weight of up to 6 tons and trunks that can lift VERY heavy things , they can easily flip over a jeep filled with tourists.

In conclusion, Elephants are not predators, but are capable of killing practically anything.

Predators have to be extremely hungry to bother African elephants. Some predators such as female lions will follow the herd to try and grab a small elephant if they can, but mature female elephants are very wary of this.

Lions, hyaenas and wild dogs hunt elephants in Africa. They can only take calves as the adults are too big. In Asia the main predators are tigers, and they have occasionally been known to kill adults.

Adult African elephants have no predators other than humans. Elephants calfs predators include lions, hyenas, and crocodiles. When a predator approaches a elephant herd the herd will form a protective circle around the young until the threat leaves.
