There are two species of elephants that live in Africa. The first is the African savanna/bush elephant (Loxodonta africana). This species mainly lives in marshes, grasslands, savannas, swamps and alongside lakes. The second species – the African forest elephant (Loxodonta cyaclotis) - lives in the dense tropical rainforests and mountains.
Habitat: The largest living land animal, the African elephant lives both on the grasslands (savannahs) and in the forests. African elephants in grasslands regions tend to live in larger groups than those who live in the forests. In fact, savannah elephants may join together in loosely knit clans of up to 70 members!
The tusks keep on growing as long as an elephant lives. If an elephant uses them a great deal, they wear away at the points as they grow at the roots. Because one tusk is likely to be used more than the other in digging up roots, the two are seldom of equal length. The heaviest known single tusk weighs 235 pounds (107 kilograms).
