Caption

Elephant jawbones. Rows of the jawbones of African elephants (Loxodonta africana) with their tusks removed for their ivory. Ivory, the outer coating of the tusk, is used in jewellery and is also believed to have medicinal properties by some Asian cultures. Ivory commands a high price, and many elephants are illegally slaughtered for their tusks. As a result, elephant populations are severely endangered.
