Can you identify this creature? Take your best guess in today's edition of Patterson's Pixels!

If you guessed that this animal was an elephant, or actually a herd of elephants, than you are correct! Did you know that elephants are the largest land mammal on earth? In fact, the African elephant can weigh up to eight tons! Now that is some serious poundage.

But as gorgeous as these giant creatures are, they are in serious peril. According to the World Wildlife Fund, not only are elephants losing their habitats and migratory routes, but there is one very serious threat to their very existence: man. Sadly, elephants are still being poached for their ivory despite the fact that it is illegal for hunters to do so.

You can help to stop wildlife crime. Watch the video below, then visit the World Wildlife Fund to find out what you can do to make a difference! (Warning: The video below is graphic.)
