Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Asian Elephant
Asian Elephant (ˈāZHən ˈeləfənt)
Even though I have just returned from Europe with my Sketching class, I am already planning next years trip to Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. I am excited to draw some elephants.
The Asian Elephant is on the endanger species list. Their major threat is loss of habitat, but they are also threatened by poaching, and the capture of elephants for domestic use. They are smaller than their African cousins, have smaller ears and not all of then have tusks. Interestingly, they have five toes on their hind feet but only four toenails.
