The African Bush Elephant or African Savanna Elephant (Loxodonta africana) is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African Forest Elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African Elephant.  Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence  insufficient for splitting the African Elephant into two species.
The African Bush Elephant is regarded as Vulnerable by the IUCN. Major threats include poaching and habitat fragmentation.
