Elephant Facts: The Asian and African Elephant Population

Elephants which have a lifespan of about 50 years are the largest land mammal on earth and are known to love long wide spaces to roam. They will live in almost any habitat where there is plentiful of water and food. Look at any elephant and the first thing that comes to you would be the size of its trunk. This is really its nose and with that, you would notice the large floppy ears and wide thick legs. Once common throughout the continents of Asia and Africa, the elephant populations are slowly dwindling in size. Their numbers fell dramatically because of threats resulting from poachers looking to kill them for their ivory tusks and also due to habitat loss caused by human encroachment. There are about 400,000 elephants which live on our planet today and their numbers are falling.

There are two species of elephants. The larger of the two is the African elephant which weighs about 6 tonnes while the Asian origins are said to weigh about 5 tonnes. According to the San Diego Zoo, the largest elephant ever recorded was an African elephant weighing about 24,000 lbs and measuring about 13 feet in length. African elephants also grow to about 8-13 feet from shoulder to toe while their Asian counterparts average about 6.5-10 feet. In Africa, the elephant can be found in the sub-Saharan region, the rain forests of Central and West Africa and in the desert of Mali. In Asia, the elephant lives in Nepal, India and parts of Southeast Asia such as Thailand and Indonesia.

A number of conservation groups like the World Wide Fund (WWF) and the National Geographic are making considerable efforts to protect the elephant population through educational programs, and other efforts aimed at lowering their extinction such as collaborating with the authorities to prevent poaching and finding ways to reduce their habitat loss.

Here are some facts about elephants:

  1. Elephants are herbivores and consume grass, roots, fruit and bark up to 300 pounds a day. Their tusks which are made of solid ivory and prized by poachers which then sell them on the black market for a lot of money, are used to pull the bark off the trees. They also use the tusks to dig roots out of the ground to eat. Sometimes, in dry conditions, the elephant will use its tusks to dig out water from the ground which it might share with other elephants.
  2. Elephants live in a group called a herd which is held together by a female elephant called a matriarch who coaches and guides young baby elephants on the rules of the herd. She is deemed to be the oldest female in the herd. The male elephants on the other hand, leave the herd while young at about 14 years of age and are free to roam on their own in isolation.
  3. A female elephant is called a “cow” while a male elephant is called a “bull”. A baby elephant is called a “calf” A pregnant elephant will face about 22 months of gestation. When her baby is born, it will weigh about 200 lbs and stand about 3 feet. Baby elephants will gain about 3 lbs everyday until its first birthday.
  4. The elephant has a characteristic ear. African elephants are known to have very large ears which when stretched out, are shaped like the continent they live on. Asian elephants on the other hand, have smaller ears which are rounded on top and flat on the bottom.
  5. The elephant uses its massive trunks to communicate with another elephant. When an elephant meets, it expects the other elephant to extend its trunk out as a show of greeting. The elephant also uses its trunk to bathe. It would suck in water using its trunk and then blow on its back like a misty shower. The trunk is said to contain about 100,000 muscles according to National Geographic.

Elephants are one of the most intelligent mammals on this planet and are necessary in our ecosystem. When they eat, they create gaps which allow new plants to grow in its place. They also help with seed dispersal enabling trees, bushes and grass to grow in other areas since their dung is rich in seed content. Wherever they deposit, vegetation growth begins.

The biggest threat to the elephant habitat comes from humans. While they once lived in large numbers, their population is slowing falling because of poaching and human encroachment. It is said that in both Asia and Africa, reports of conflicts between man and elephant is told almost everyday. In Africa, elephants sometimes face drought and this can affect their population growth. One of the ways we can support their growth patterns is to stop demanding ivory and have more agreements like CITES to protect the African elephant population and punish poachers who refuse to follow the law. It is also important to educate the public to understand that the threats facing the elephant population are real and that they need to be protected.

While elephant face the threat from human kind, conservationists have been educating the public about the need to protect the wildlife and one of them includes the mighty elephant. Because of our interest and cultural respect for the elephant, many of us treasure their forms in our households using statues and sculptures of elephants and even elephant bookends to add to the character of our garden landscape. Some organizations also adorn bronze life size sculptures of elephants to tell their story. Please email us for more information on our elephant sculptures.
