Although elephants are often stereotyped as loving peanuts, they do not eat them in the wild. Elephants are herbivores, and peanuts are too high in protein for their normal diet. This misconception most likely began in circuses and zoos during the 19th century. Many of these attractions allowed visitors to feed the animals, and bags of peanuts were the most convenient option.
