Of the two species of Elephant, African and Asian, the African elephant is the largest land animal on earth. The African elephant is easily recognized by its larger ears. It is the Asian Elephant that can be domesticated and used as working animals in Asia.

There are some who predict both species could become extinct, resulting from being slaughtered for the ivory tusks, and the destruction habitat by encroaching human populations.
