A Classification of Elephants

Elephants are the largest terrestrial mammals and belong to the order Proboscidae.  They  can be divided into two groups based on where they come from.  The first group is Indian elephants which live in  Asia and the Indian subcontinent, while the second group is African which are found in Africa.  The African group can also be classified into two groups according to their habitat.  The first type is bush elephants which live in savannah or bush habitats.  They are up to 3.5 m tall at the shoulder, weigh up to 5.400 kg, and have immense triangular  ears.  Finally, the second group is forest which is found in forest habitats.  They are up to 2.5 m tall at the shoulder, weigh up to 3.500kg, and have  small and round ears.

Elephants are the largest terrestrial mammals and belong to the order
Proboscidae. They can be divided into 2 groups according to their habitat. The first group is the Indian elephant located in Asia and the Indian subcontinent, while the second is the African one which is found  in Africa.  It can also be classified into 2 subgroups according to the elephants’ habitats. The 1st subgroup is named Bush elephants because they live in savannah or bush habitats and they are up to 3.5 m tall at the shoulder, weigh up to 5.400 kg and have immense triangular ears. Finally, the second subgroup is called Forest elephants because they live in forests and, of course, they also have many physical characteristics, such as they grow up to 2.5 m tall at the shoulder, weigh up to 3.500 kg and have small round ears.

A Classification of Cetacea

Cetacea are an order of aquatic mammals that includes whales and dolphins.  They can be divided into 2 groups, Mysticeti and Odontocti, based on their physical characteristics. The first type is Mysticeti which have  no teeth, and have keratin baleen plates, 2 blowholes and an asymmetrical skull, such as Bryde’s whale. The second is Odontocti which have conical teeth, 1 blowhole and an asymmetrical skull. The latter can also be classified into 2 subgroups  according to their beaks. The 1st subgroup is Delphinidae which have a distinctive break, are medium to large and have a streamlined body, such as the bottle-nosed dolphin. Finally, the 2nd subgroup is Phonocoenidae which have  no beak, are generally small, and have a chubby, stout body, e.g. the harbor porpoise.
