The African elephant is the largest land animal, with males standing 3.2 metres or 10 ft to 4 metres or 13 ft at the shoulder. They weigh around 3,500 kilograms up to a reported 12,000 kilograms. The female is smaller, standing about 3 metres or 9.8 ft at the shoulder.

Asian Elephants are not as large as their African cousins but can weigh around 5,400 kg and stand over 3.4 m or 11 ft tall
Depending on the size of the Elephant with its trunk it can weigh up to 200 - 400 (kg) kilograms.
