3. Borneo Pygmy Elephant
The Borneo Pygmy Elephant is perhaps the cutest elephant there is. These elephants have oversized ears, fat tummies, and long tails. As their name suggests, they are the smallest of the elephants. They are also very gentle. Their population is very small, with only around 1,500 elephants. This small population is primarily due to deforestation. The Borneo Pygmy Elephants live in the forest, and the loss of habitat is devastating for them.
