African and Asianelephants have some differences that will make it easier for elephant lovers and those who study elephants to determine which is which. In the beginning, they may look alike but if you look closely, you will notice that their ears are shaped differently.
The ears of the Africanelephant looks like the continent of Africa while the ears of the Asianelephant is rounder and smaller. The skin of the Africanelephant is also more wrinkled as compared to the Asianelephant which has the tendency to make them look older than usual. Asianelephants have a divot line that can make them seem to have twin-domed heads.
For one difference, African elephants have much bigger ears than Asian elephants do, and the very same can be said about the head size of the African elephant. The African elephant has a much fuller and rounder head than that of the Asian elephant.
Only male Asian elephants are the ones that grow tusks, and in some cases, not all the males do have tusks. Both the sexes in African elephants have tusks.
