These two ladies are retired circus elephants. They are Asian elephants that happily spend all their time together. Asian elephants are smaller than African savannah elephants. They are hairy, have two domes on the top of their heads and one finger at the end of their trunks. They have smaller ears than African elephants. African elephants have one dome, two fingers at the end of their trunks and are not hairy. African elephants have tusks. Asian elephants do not have those long incisors. Some have smaller tusks called, "Tushes" and many have none. Elephants are one of the few creatures that can recognize themselves in a mirror. I really enjoyed their story. I illustrated and put these ladies on my mugs and trays.
