Around East Asia, they’re called typhoons. Around North America, they’re called hurricanes. Around Australia and India, they’re called cyclones. Typhoon season usually starts in June and ends in October. The storms come alive in the middle of the ocean, when warm air and cold air mix with warm ocean water. This makes powerful spinning winds and rain. These storms have a strong start, but luckily for us, they slow down upon reaching land. Before, during, and after these storms,

Elephants are the largest land animals in the world. They are so big that they can’t run or jump! However, they are excellent swimmers. Elephants use their trunks as snorkels when they swim in deep water. Elephants are very large, so they need to eat almost 300 kilograms of food every day. They only eat plants and like grasses and tree leaves the most. Elephants also have very good memories—they are able to remember friends that they met over twenty years ago. Even though elephants’ size can be frightening, they truly are nature’s gentle giants.
