    The visible differences between African and Asian elephants include the facts that the Asian elephant is smaller and has 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.
