(Baby) Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus)

Elephas maximus

Number 0018

This one is for Raecheleia! Asian elephants, also called Indian elephants, are smaller than the African ones, with smaller ears, too, and they’re easier to train, so they are frequently used as beasts of burden. They are endangered in the wild. This one’s a baby with fur on his head and wrinkles all over.

I’m moving across the country in about six hours. I’ve got mammals drawn for the next several days, and I’ll post them as I can this week, depending on the Internet access in my motels. If I miss a day, please forgive me, and I will catch up as soon as I can!
