The only living species of the genus Elephas (not to be confused with the family Elephantidae), Asian elephants are the largest land animal in Asia. While this little calf will certainly be enormous in just a few years, it still has a lot of growing to do! History:
Unfortunately, the Asian elephant is a considered a critically endangered species. Despite conservation sanctuaries and methods readily established throughout the world to protect Asian elephants, these beautiful creatures are suffering from a loss of their natural habitat as well as a heightened amount of illegal poaching. However, there’s lots of hope that these amazing animals can be effectively protected, allowing their population numbers to stabilize and grow.
