The two species are traditionally recognised as the African elephant and the Asian elephant. They are herbivorous and can be found in different habitats including savannahs, forests, deserts and marshes. They prefer to stay near water and are considered to be keystone species due to their impact on their environments.They communicate by touch, sight, smell and sound, use infrasound, and seismic communication over long distances. Elephant intelligence has been compared with that of primates and cetaceans. They appear to have self-awareness and show empathy for dying or dead individuals of their kind. Elephants are highly recognisable and have been featured in art, folklore, religion, literature and popular culture.
