"Estos elefantes son muy fuertes."
Translation:These elephants are very strong.
Why 'estos' and not 'estes'? Since the 'estos' refers to elephants, and elephants are masculine, seems to me it should be 'estes'.
este is singular, masculine, esta is singular feminine and estos is plural masculine.
"These" and "those" are both plural demonstrative pronouns.
In usage, "these" items are the ones that are nearby you, and "those" items are further away.
These apples right here are for you, but those apples on the other side of the room are for your little brother.
