High quality live streaming webcam of the Asian Elephants at the Houston zoo. There
are two webcams featuring the Elephant yard cam and the elephant pool cam. The elephants have a choice of spending time inside
their barn or outside. In the morning the Zookeepers clean the yard and put out treats for the elephants.
The visible differences between African and Asian elephants include the facts that Asian elephants are smaller in stature and have smaller more rounded ears. The Asian elephant has less rings on its trunk and only the male has tusks.
The Asian elephant is distributed throughout the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, from India in the west, Nepal in the north, Sumatra in the south, and to Borneo in the east.
