Caption: African elephants are currently found in 37 countries in Africa. They are distinguishable from Asian elephants in several ways, the most noticeable being their ears which are much larger. The African elephant is typically larger than the Asian elephant and has a concave back. Both African males and females have external tusks and are usually less hairy than their Asian cousins. It is the largest land animal in the world, with the males standing 10 feet to 13 feet at the shoulder and weighing 7,700 lbs. to a reported 26,000 lbs. The female is smaller, standing about 9.8 feet.
