Caption: African elephant skull. Complete skull of an African elephant (Loxodonta africana), seen from the side. The front of the skull is at right. The molars are seen in the jawbones. The large holes above the jawbones are where the tusks used to be. In some areas of Africa, elephants are hunted by poachers for the ivory in their tusks. Photographed in Savuti, northern Botswana.
