Earliest Most Common Ancestor: Primelephas
Adaptations probably will not change, but since the elephant isn't so used to cold weather, it may be hard to get what they need to eat since the foods would be different in cold weather then what they are used to eating in hot weather.
Primelephas were the earliest most commonly traced ancestors that came approx. 7 million years ago.
They were called "Primelephas" because primelephas means "The First Elephant"
Where do they live?
Elephants live in approx. 37 African countries. They live in many habitats that are tropical forests, savannas, grasslands, and woodlands.

Grey, Wrinkled Skin
4 foot long tail
5 toes but only 3 nails on hind feet

huge ears shaped like Africa.
Tusks in both upper and lower jaw
