The elephant is the earth’s largest land animal. Asian elephants (also known as Indian elephants) are found in Southeast Asia, and can be distinguished by their arched back which is slightly taller than their shoulders or rump. African elephants live in Africa, south of the Sahara desert and are the larger than their Asian cousins. The biggest elephant ever weighed was an African bull weighing more than 14,500 pounds!
