Borneo Pygmy Elephant

Elephas maximus borneensis

Status: Endangered

This baby-faced subspecies of Asian elephant inhabits northeastern Borneo, in Indonesia and Malaysia. They are actually not much smaller than other Asian elephants, but they tend to be more gentle-natured. The species is threatened by loss of habitat to oil palm plantations.
