African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana)

Description
THE AFRICAN ELEPHANT. This species of the Elephant family differs from the other or Indian species by its larger ears, more
powerful tusks and darker skin. It roams wild over a large portion of Africa, although the eager pursuit of the ivory hunters is constantly thin-
ning the herds. This picture brings out the characteristics of this great animal with wonderful fidelity. .Elcfhas africanus.)
