Excerpt: L. adaurora (Maglio 1970a) ssp. adaurora (Maglio 1970) ssp. kararae (Beden 1983) L. africana (Blumenbach, 1797)L. atlantica (Pomel, 1879) ssp. angammensis (Coppens, 1965) ssp. atlantica (Pomel, 1879) L. cyclotis (Matschie, 1900)L. exaptata (Dietrich 1941) African elephants are the species of elephants in the genus Loxodonta (Greek for 'oblique-sided tooth'), one of the two existing genera in Elephantidae.

At about 40 to 60 years of age the elephant no longer has teeth and will likely die of starvation, a common cause of death. Their tusks are teeth; the second set of incisors become the tusks. They are used for digging for roots and stripping the bark...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=141625
