Welcome to the Elephant encyclopedia and www.elephant.se, owned and managed by elephant consultant Dan Koehl. (ORCID Wikipedia article)

With 25 years online, this is the oldest website about elephants, presently under renovation, where old sections like The Elephant Glossary and Frequently asked questions about elephants (FAQ) from 1995 will soon be revised, updated and further developed.

Elephant database

The Elephant Database is the largest online elephant database in the world and also possibly the largest database of animal individuals. Updated almost daily it presently presents 8798 captive living elephants , and each of the 3109 location facilities from 123 countries in 6 continent regions, as a neutral unbiased documentation. Above you can either search for an elephants name, capture year, import year, transfer year, a location name or for a certain country. You can also use the navigation links on top, on "database" you can choose births and deaths for any given year 1880-today from the list of 6946 dead elephants from both species..

Click on a country to see overview of statistical number and the category of different locations within the country

When you click on a location: four different category tabs let you choose how much, and what you want to see: (the tabs also show how many individuals are within each category) Location info contains basic records and history about a location, present give an overview over the elephants living on the location now, births list the elephants which was born on the location, deaths the one that died there, and total gives a full-length list of all elephants which was ever at the location.

Elephants with unknown present or death location, origin, birth or previous location, are listed on the fictional location unknown location, and elephant with unknown destiny are also listed at lost, to follow up, while possible duplicates (two different records elephants who may be the same elephant) are listed at possible duplicates?. If you have any information regarding those elephants, please contact us.

Click on every elephant to see the individual presentaton with history on present and past locations, and see eventual existing and documented parentage and offspring. each individual has a number in the database, each location also, and the number one; Sebas pickled elephant (https://www.elephant.se/database2.php?elephant_id=1) was the first description of an Asian elephant by Carl Linnaeus, although later research with DNA, confirmed its actually an African elephant, today located at the Swedish Museum of Natural History (https://www.elephant.se/location2.php?location_id=2986).

There are also a number of sections with different data sorts, like regional studbooks and breeding, transfer and relocations of elephants, births and deaths, disease and longevity, and year lists from 1880-today.
