The African Elephant

African elephants are larger – they can grow up to up to 4 meters tall whereas Asian Elephants are only between 2 and 3.5 metres tall. African Elephants also have larger ears, which if you look are shaped like the African continent! Asian Elephants have a dent in their foreheads and 5 toenails on their forelegs, whereas African ones usually only have four.

Such an amazing, intelligent, caring, social creature. Please don't visit the circus or buy ivory. These animals deserve so much better

Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species are recognized, the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus). Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. They are the only surviving proboscideans; extinct species include mammoths and mastodons. Baby.
