Craig is the largest living Elephant in the world. Born in 1972, he is 51 years old. This African savanna elephant weighed about 10,886 kilograms and was 13 feet (3.96 meters) tall at the shoulder! Most elephants don’t get that large, but African elephants do grow larger than Asian elephants.
With a phallus that is about 40 inches and a diameter of about 86 inches at the base. It is S-shaped when fully erect and has a Y-shaped orifice which has enabled this legend to dutifully fulfill its ministry in the last 40 years sowing seeds of greatness across the savanna and blessing us with great genes of giant African Savanna Elephants. African elephants become sexually mature at age 10–12, whereas Asian elephants become sexually mature about age 14. It is during that period that males leave their natal herd (herd of origin) to live either singly or in small herds with other males.
According to the photographer, Suresh Shetty Craig already has age-related wear and tear on his teeth which may make it difficult for him to eat. If he’s unable to consume enough food to sustain himself, he may become an ancestor.Unfortunately male Elephants lack the bonding and other biological advantages that females have which makes them live far longer.
In Elephantdom, a 50 year old male is old, but a 50 year old female is a middle aged Elephant in her prime being prepared for the role of Matriarchal leadership because she has about 20 to 30 more years to go. Some live up to 100. Interestingly, it is not only in Elephants land but in virtually all living things from bacteria to Iroko trees. Females outlive males.
Researchers have looked at the lifespans of 101 different species, from sheep to elephants, and found that females lived an average of 18% longer than males for more than 60% of the species studies. In humans, females tend to live around 7.8% longer. A giant in all respect!
