African Bush Elephants in GURPS

Loxodonta africana

African bush elephants have historically ranged over the open lands of sub-Saharan Africa, although their population is now fragmented into reserves. They are the largest living land animals. These elephants are distinguished by their large size, sway backs, and large fan-like ears. Both males and females have tusks, although those of the females are usually shorter. The bush elephant looks nearly identical to the smaller African forest elephant. Bush elephants are primarily browsers.
