“The Asian Elephant ":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_elephant
PHOTO TAKEN 09 /09/ 2008 AT THE NOORDER ZOO IN THE NETHER LANDS

(Elephas maximus), sometimes known by the name of one of its subspecies – the Indian Elephant, is one of the two living species of elephant, and the only living species of the genus Elephas. It is the largest living land animal in Asia. The species is found primarily in large parts of Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Indochina and parts of Indonesia. It is considered endangered, with between 25,600 and 32,750 left in the wild.


This animal is widely domesticated, and has been used in forestry in South and Southeast Asia for centuries and also in ceremonial purposes. Historical sources indicate that they were sometimes used during the harvest season primarily for milling. Wild elephants attract tourist money to the areas where they can most readily be seen, but damage crops, and may enter villages to raid gardens
