The Elephant API

A free API to feature awesome elephants in your next project.

Finally!

For the longuest of time, we lived in an unjust world. While cats and dogs had their respective APIs, elephants did not. Not anymore!

How to use it?

These are REAL elephants! If you don't believe me, check them out on Wikipedia.

As such, they come with interesting data points to use as placeholders in your next app. These include name, date of birth and/or death, sex, species, and even some important facts about their lives.
