A strange eye!



This wonderful golden eye belongs to an elephant, an amazing animal who is as smart as a dog or dolphin!


There are three kinds of elephants living in the world. When we are done looking at all three, you should be able to tell the difference between:

  • African bush elephants
  • African forest elephants
  • Asian elephants


We will also look at some extinct elephants that might be familiar to you:

  • Mammoths
  • Mastodons
  • Stegodons
But to get you started, I have pictures of the three types that exist today...what differences can you see in them?
