10 Brand New Elephant Coloring Pages – Free to Print and Color
We all know elephants for being one of the biggest and strongest animals on the planet. Male elephants can grow up to 4 meters in height and weigh up to 7 tons.
But these impressive mammals can be gentle and cute as well.
Take a look at this lovely elephant depicted on our first elephant coloring page and you’ll understand what we mean.
This baby elephant looks absolutely adorable with its tiny trunk and floppy ears. We think a classic grey shade would suit him well.
Did you know that elephants have around 150,000 muscles in their trunk? The trunk is actually an extension of their upper lip and nose and a very versatile tool.
Elephants use their trunks to breathe, eat, drink, communicate or grab things.
This endearing baby elephant pictured in our second coloring printable has a big smile and holds his trunk in the air.
We don’t know what he’s planning to do next, but it looks like he’s trying to reach for something. You can use any colors you like to bring this picture to life.
If there is something that elephants love to do, that would be eating. Since they’re such large animals, they need to eat a lot of food every day to sustain their massive bodies.
An elephant can spend up to three-quarters of its day eating.
This elephant coloring printable shows us a little elephant that has already gotten a taste for savanna grasses, shrubs, and herbs.
He seems to be looking at something he’s found on the ground. Maybe it’s a piece of bark or some fruits he enjoys eating.
Mother elephants develop strong bonds with their calves. That’s because elephants have a deep sense of family and they make great efforts to protect their babies.
It’s a joy to watch a mother elephant interacting with its calf as you can see in this coloring printable. This page depicts a moment of tenderness between a mother elephant and her young baby.
You can experiment with different shades to color the mother and the baby elephant.
Baby elephants are just as playful as human children. They can get very creative when they play, using bones, stones, plants, or sticks as toys.
Here’s a baby elephant that sure knows how to play. The little mammal in this elephant coloring sheet is pictured sitting on the ground, looking straight at us.
Maybe he got tired of playing in the African savanna with other baby elephants and decided to take a break.
How about choosing a less classic color combination for our little friend here? Some bold and bright colors will complement his playful nature.
Here’s an interesting fact about elephant calves: they can stand within 20 minutes of being born and can walk within 1 hour. It only takes newborn baby elephants two days to keep up with the herd.
The tiny elephant in our next coloring printable is definitely doing a great job at standing on his feet.
With his Dumbo-like ears, he looks like he could take off at any time if he wants to. Would you use the classic grey hues to color it or would you try something a bit more creative?
They say that an elephant never forgets. That’s because elephants have large brains, allowing them to build up a strong memory over time.
They can remember places, faces, or events that happen in the wild.
Maybe the little elephant featured in this coloring sheet here doesn’t have a lot of memories, since he’s so young. But the smile on his face tells us that the ones he has are wonderful.
Let’s choose some shades that are just as cheerful as he is to color this page.
You can easily distinguish African elephants from Asian elephants by looking at their ears. African elephants have large, floppy ears, while Asian elephants have smaller, round ears.
Can you tell if the baby elephant pictured in this elephant coloring printable belongs to the African or the Asian species?
If you’re not sure, you can look at some elephant pictures to help you spot the differences.
Regardless of the species, you can choose any shades you like to color this tiny mammal and put your creative skills to the test.
Even if elephants move slower than other animals because of their heavy bodies, it doesn’t mean they lack energy.
Quite the opposite – they can actually walk up to nearly 200 miles in a day if they have to.
Look at this little elephant here. He seems to be moving quite fast like he’s on a very important mission. We’re wondering what he’s up to.
Maybe you can figure it out while you’re deciding what colors to use for this elephant coloring sheet.
Elephant trunks have many interesting skills. Did you know they can be used as a snorkel when swimming or that they can sense thunders?
In this cute printable from our elephant coloring collection, we have a baby elephant with its trunk in the air. Maybe he’s learning how to use his trunk, just like older elephants do.
We know that in real life elephants are grey, but you can choose a different color scheme if you want. Coloring is about using your creativity and imagination.
