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
