Is it true that srilankan elephants tasks are full inside and African elephants tasks are empty inside. Which one is considered as...

...the best.


Country: Sri Lanka


African and Indian elephants are not belonging to the same family. I never have heard about the different tusks!
Its not true! ! ! !

When elephants get old the tasks get hollow... but the Asian elephants tasks are harder hence it is not hollow most of the time.

But the African elephants tasks are not so hard hence it becomes hollow when the beast is old....

that is the only explanation could be given....
Thanks for your answer. Any way i believe that the asian elephant tusks are considered more valuble although it is severly prohibited of selling.
It is also prohibited to sell african tusks.
