    The main food that elephants will eat in the wild is grass or leaves, but if the weather is bad they will eat whatever vegetation is available. They will knock over trees to get at leaves and bark. They will use their tusks to dig up roots. They have also been known to eat flowers, wild fruits, shrubs, twigs, bamboo, and bananas.
