    The Indian Elephant is one of the recognised sub-species of the Asian Elephant. Asian Elephants differ in many ways from their African relatives – they are smaller in size with smaller ears, and the back of the Indian elephant is more rounded making the crown of the head the highest point of the body.

    The African species has a two-fingered tip to its trunk where the Indian Elephant has only one ‘finger’ The tusks of the male Indian Elephant are more curved and thicker than those of the African elephant.
