Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species are recognised, the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species (L.  africana and L.  cyclotis respectively). Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia.
