  1. It's part of Loxodonta but is different, it's a desert elephant, very rare and only a few still living in namibia :D Posted 7 years ago
    1. Thanks for adding that, so this is a sub specie, right?

      It's good that you're adding that, JungleDragon can only identify species at the specie level based on Wikipedia.

The African bush elephant is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African forest elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African elephant, but recent evidence has seen the forest elephant classified as a distinct species . Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence as insufficient for splitting African elephants into two species.
