African Forest Elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis)

Pair of elevation illustrations of the African Forest Elephant seen from the side and front

African Forest Elephant (Loxodonta Cyclotis) originates from humid rainforests and the Congo Basin in West Africa. It is the smallest of the three species of living elephants to a height of 2.4 meters. Both sexes of the African Forest Elephant have straight down-pointing tusks, which erupt at the age of 1–3 years. The African forest elephant has a brown skin that appears yellow to reddish when wallowed. It resides in households of up to 20 elephants. It has been called the 'forest megagardener' since it is drilled on eating leaves, seeds, fruit, and tree bark.

Elephants are the largest existing land mammals and can be found in Africa and Asia. Elephants used to be a common animal, but their species have been severely depleted due to poaching for their ivory tusks. Female elephants live in groups while males tend to live alone until mating season.
