African male and female elephants have tusks, but only the male Asian elephant has tusks. The Asian female elephant has tushes, which is an incisor-tooth that sticks out from the lips. For more information click here.
I've ridden an Asian elephant, but I've only seen African elephants in zoos. Have you seen or ridden an elephant?
