Elephants are mega-herbivores. They are generalists that can thus utilize a variety of food resources. Depending on availability, elephants feed on browse and grass. When fresh grass is available this is the preferred diet. Twigs, bark, and roots also form part of the diet, especially in the dry season, when no grass is available. In mineral-poor areas, minerals are often supplemented by eating soil and salt. An adult bull will consume 300–400 kg of fresh forage per day, and a cow about 250 kg.

Oryx

Oryx

All oryx species prefer near-desert conditions and can survive without water for long periods. They live in herds of up to 600 animals. Newborn calves are able to run with the herd immediately after birth. Both males and females possess permanent horns. The horns are narrow and straight except in the scimitar oryx, where they curve backward like a scimitar. The horns can be lethal: oryxes have been known to kill lions with them, and they are thus sometimes called saber antelopes (not to be confused with the sable antelope).

Zebras are African equines with distinctive black-and-white striped coats. There are three extant species: the Grévy’s zebra, the plains zebra, and the mountain zebra. Zebra stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual. Several theories have been proposed for the function of these stripes, with most evidence supporting them as a form of protection from biting flies. Zebras inhabit eastern and southern Africa and can be found in a variety of habitats such as savannahs, grasslands, woodlands, shrublands, and mountainous areas.
