Elephant is a big Mammalia from a family Elephantdae and ordo Proboscidean. Traditionally, there are two species of elephant which are from Africa and Asia. Sumatran elephant is a subspecies from Asian elephant that only inhabits Sumatera Island. Sumatran elephant is smaller than those found in India. The population of this elephant has decreased by 80 %, due to the human selfishness. Sumatran elephants feed on a variety of plants and deposit seeds wherever they go, contributing to a healthy forest ecosystem. They also share their lush forest habitat with several other endangered species, such as the Sumatran rhino, tiger, and orangutan, and countless other species that all benefit from an elephant population that thrives in a healthy habitat.
Good luck and good fortune, is generally considered as the elephant symbol. Part of Asia have their own belief that elephant symbolizes divinity and benevolence. They also symbolize wisdom, loyalty, strength, fidelity and longevity. As a symbol of wisdom, elephant is said to attain old age and with all its wisdom. This animal is highly revered for its strength and power. There are several lessons we can learn from the elephant and these too are used as its symbol: strength, wisdom, solitude, strong sense of loyalty to the family and intelligence. Other communities still consider the Elephant to be a strong symbol of luck. And thus the saying goes by keeping an elephant figure at the door to your house so that you can get protection from bad luck.
