Darwin showed how even a slow growing animal like elephant can reach enormous numbers in absence of checks. What does this mean?

Dear student,
Any species growing exponentially under unlimited resource conditions can reach enormous population density in a short time. If we do not check the resources and they become unlimited , then as Darwin said a slow growing elephant could also reach an enormous population if the resources supplied are unlimited for its growth in its habitat.
