Asian Elephant

(Elephas Maximus)

This is a giclee print of my original pen, ink and watercolour illustration of the highly intelligent Asian Elephant.

‘Asian Elephants are highly intelligent and social creatures, and are among the few mammals to have an understanding of ‘self’ recognizing their own reflection. Female and young males live in herds of related adults and offspring, with male asian elephants leaving the herd once they reach relative maturity at around 13 years old. To communicate, they produce rumbles, growls, bellows and moans with some of these low frequency sounds traveling several miles. Asian elephants are able to walk silently through their tropical forest homes thanks to their wide padded feet. There are four subspecies of Asian Elephant: The Sri Lankan, Sumatran, Bornean and Indian elephant. The Asian elephants territory originally ranged frommodern Iraq to the Yellow river in China, but now they are only found from India to Vietnam, with a tiny cut off population in the extreme SW of China’s Yunnan Province. More than 100,000 Asian elephants are believed to have existed at the start of the 20th century. The population is estimated to have fallen by at least 50% over the last 60-75 years not only due to poaching for meat and ivory, but the vast deforestation of their habitat. ..’
