Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus)Fun Fact!:
Asian elephants have been domesticated for thousands of years. The powerful beasts have been employed to move heavy objects, such as felled trees, to carry humans on their backs, and even to wage war! Conservation Note!:
Elephants face almost certain extinction in nearly every place they exist. Only about 30,000 Asian elephants remain in the wild, scattered across fragmented habitats in 13 Asian countries.
