The Asian or Asiatic Elephant (Elephas maximus), sometimes known by
the name of one of its subspecies the Indian Elephant, is one of the three 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 Bangladesh, India, Sri
Lanka, Indochina and parts of Nepal and Indonesia and Thailand. It is considered
endangered, with between 41,410 and 52,345 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.
