|Asian Straight-tusked Elephant|
Palaeoloxodon namadicus or the Asian straight-tusked elephant, was a species of 2.1-metre-tall (6.9 ft) prehistoric elephant that ranged throughout Pleistocene Asia, from India (where it was first discovered) to Japan, where the indigenous Neolithic cultures hunted that particular subspecies for food. It is a descendant of the straight-tusked elephant.
