Cyprus Dwarf Elephant (Palaeoloxodon cypriotes)

Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Cyprus Dwarf Elephant viewed from the front and side

The Cyprus Dwarf Elephant (Palaeoloxodon Cypriot) is an extinct species that inhabited Cyprus Island during the Late Pleistocene up until approximately 11,000 BC. The molar analogy confirms the suggestion that the genus evolved from the long protruding straight-tusked elephant, whose much smaller animal populated Cyprus and some other Mediterranean islands during the Messinian salinity crisis, during the late Pleistocene. The total body weight was just about 200 kilograms. Studies show that the Cyprus Dwarf Elephant stood tall at 4 to 5 feet hence the name Dwarf. The Cyprus Dwarf Elephant can be compared to current newborn elephants in size.

Cyprus Dwarf Elephants had a typical shoulder height between 4.25’-4.58’ (1.3-1.4 m), body length of 5.58’-5.91’ (1.7-1.8 m), and width of 2.4’-2.5’ (.73-.76 m). The typical weight of the Cyprus Dwarf Elephant was in the range of 440-550 lb (200-250 kg). Cyprus Dwarf Elephants had estimated minimum lifespans of 68 years.

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.
