There are two distinct species of elephants: African elephants (Loxodonta africana) and Asian elephants (Elephas maximus). They both live in hot, somewhat inhospitable environments, with occasional droughts and plenty of predators to threaten prey animals, but their adaptations have helped them to survive these conditions.

    Elephant Habitats. Elephants live in a few different habitats, including forests and grasslands. A forest is an area full of trees, and a grassland is a large, open area covered in grass where. » Skyenimals Books» Skyenimals Blog» Sykenimals Retail Store» Free Animal Bookmarks» Friends of Skyenimals» Skyenimal System» Zurtle Collection» Young Poets» List of Zoos» My Profile» Help; close Animal Habitats For Kids Click on the animal habitat images below to see a list of animals by habitat and to learn more about the.

While the clearly-told story and stunning photos make this a must-have book 5/5(3). Indian elephants inhabit forested ecosystems. The economics of war elephants dictates their capture as mature adults (age 40 seems ideal) rather than fully domesticating them.

Therefore, Indian kingship had a vested interest in the preservation of elephant habitat. The book is as much about Indian kingship as about by: The book provides real life images of elephants in their natural habitat.

Elephants make home in a variety of habitats including tropical and subtropical zones. Their habitat ranges from dry deciduous forests, savannas (such as mixed woodland and grassland mosaics), semi-deserts, and evergreen rainforests.

Elephants are normally mixed feeders as. Many people assume that elephants that are in the wild only live in the grasslands. While that is one of their main habitats, they can also be found in the desert of the Savannah, forest areas, where there are swamps, and everything in between.

They form emigrational paths that they continue to follow year after year. Elephant, (family Elephantidae), largest living land animal, characterized by its long trunk (elongated upper lip and nose), columnar legs, and huge head with temporal glands and wide, flat ears.

Elephants are grayish to brown in colour, and their body hair is sparse and coarse. They are found most often in savannas, grasslands, and forests but occupy a wide range of habitats, including. Naturally, the predominant species will occupy the land and, as the human race continues to expand (despite a distinct lack of resources), animals are forced to negotiate on their habitat.
