Arguably the most iconic species of elephant, African elephants are native to sub-Saharan Africa. The biggest difference between Asian and African elephants is that the African species are generally larger, always have tusks, and have much broader ears.
- Scientific Name: Genus Loxodonta
- Characteristics: Did you know that the ears of the African elephant are actually the same shape as the African continent? Don’t believe us? Just take a look at this life-like, scientifically accurate model!
- Size and Color: Standing 6.5 inches long and 4 inches tall, this model is a bit shorter than a 16 oz. water bottle resting on its side and about as tall as a soda can – and is certainly smaller than an actual African elephant! Like its real-life counterpart, this figurine has a slate gray hide and pearlescent white tusks.
- The African elephant is part of the Wild Safari® Wildlife collection.
