African Forest Elephant

Animals Home > Mammals
The African Forest Elephant is unique in the sense that it has very round ears and is considerably smaller than most other species of elephants.


Latin Name: Loxodonta cyclotis  
Distribution: Africa  
African Forest Elephants are closely related to the African Bush Elephant but in recent years it has been determined that they are in fact a seperate species. DNA analysis which was not previously available was used to make this determination.
