  1. oooh - they look like they get in the way... do you think being crossed like that, they cause any problems for the elephant (eating? or getting a comfortable position for his/her trunk) Posted 3 years ago
  2. These tuskers live to a good age, this elephant must be in its 50s and 60s, Islilo an elephant at TEMBE in Mozambique had very long tusks he died naturally he was a good age. Posted 3 years ago

The Asian or Asiatic elephant is the only living species of the genus ''Elephas'' and is distributed in Southeast Asia from India in the west to Borneo in the east. Three subspecies are recognized — ''Elephas maximus maximus'' from Sri Lanka, the Indian elephant or ''E. m. indicus'' from mainland Asia, and ''E. m. sumatranus'' from the island of Sumatra. Asian elephants are the largest living land animals in Asia.
