The Indian elephant, generally smaller than his African cousin, measures between 2,5 and 3 meters in the withers for males and weigh 4 tons on average. He presents only a single prehensile finger at the end of the trunk and possesses rather small ears. The skull forms two prominent bumps and the defenses are absent at females. Living in restricted herd led by a female, he spends his time to measure the forest in search of sources of food to satisfy his vegetarian diet. Often domesticated, he is used as frame or draft animal. Formerly present on the whole Asian continent, he does not occupy any more today than a territory reduces. In the wild, the species is endangered, even if the trade of ivory is illegal.
