Can or have African elephants be domesticated?
Sort of. Elephants in Asia have been domesticated to harvest teak on plantations Burma and other countries in that area. No African elephants have been domesticated persay, but a handful have created strong bonds with humans and can be handled. It is possible to domesticate African elephants, but no one has really tried as there is no need and they are seen as more wild.

5000 B.C. somewhere in India, and believed to have been domesticated by the Aryans.
Another African elephant?
They do what we do eat ,sleep ,and play around all day.
unlike the Indian elephant the African elephant has not ever been domesticated on any sort of large scale.
African elephants have a dip in their backs, both male and female have tusks, large ears, long tusks.
They are elephants that live in Africa. Their ears are the shape of africa. They can weigh up to 14,000 pounds and be as tall as 10 feet.
In some cases, elephants have caused damage to farms that were built in their traditional habitats. This has led to controlled hunting, but also to relocation. In many cases …they are killed for the ivory in their tusks, which is still a valuable commodity in the Third World despite modern alternatives.
the family will gather round the elephant like a real funeral and they will nudge the elephant solemnly one elephant will grumble confirming the elephant is dead elephants muc…h like humans have very sad and noticeable emotions when this occurs your welcome
The Asian Elephant, also known as the Kowtow Beast, was much larger and stronger than it's African brethren. Though extremely similar physically now, the Asian and African dec…end from two extremely different creatures. The Asian elephant's DNA proves it is distantly related the Polar Bear of the Arctic. Unbelievably, the African Elephant is actually a far distant cousin of the modern white-tailed deer. The climate and environment, as well as the predatory situations of the two animals has led them to look extremely similar in modern life, but extremely different millions of years ago.
