  • 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!
  • Scientific Name: Elephas maximus
  • Characteristics: At birth, baby Asian Elephants can weigh over a hundred pounds and have been known to stay with their mothers for over 3 years. Highly intelligent even at a young age, this hand painted baby elephant figurine’s inquisitive gait and emotive eyes reflect its striking acuity.
  • Size and Color: Standing 3.7 inches long, 1 inch wide, and 1.95 inches tall, this figurine is a bit larger than a deck of cards stood on its side. Hand painted with immaculate realism, this figurine looks just like an Asian elephant calf with its dusty gray skin.
  • The Asian Elephant Baby is part of the Wild Safari® Wildlife collection.
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
  • 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. Do your part and give this little friend a home!

    An Asian baby elephant trunk has a keen sense of smell. One of the first things the baby elephant smells after birth is its mother??s dung. That??s how the baby identifies its mother from other female elephants in the herd.
