Dear %PERS_NAME%

Did you know... an elephant's ears are about one-sixth the size of its entire body? They are primarily used as a cooling device on hot African days. It has been shown that blood passing through the ears of an African elephant may lose as much as 9°C of heat. To increase the effect, elephants spray their ears with water, and flap them to create cooling air currents.

Cheers,
