"African Elephant"-original watercolor painting


The African elephant (Loxodonta africana) is the largest living land animal. It differs from the Asian elephant in having larger ears and tusks.  This very intelligent animal can live for 50 to 60 years.  They form deep family bonds and live in tight social units which are lead by an older female called the matriarch.

Habitat destruction due to increased human population in Africa as well as constant poaching for its ivory tusks has placed the African elephant on the endangered species list.   Once numbering in the millions, it is estimated that only about 400,000 to 600,000 animals remain in the wild today.
