They both look like African elephants to me.  I used to work at my local zoo, and one of the physical differences between an Asian and an African elephant is that the Asian species has smaller ears.  The ears on both versions here are large relative to the head, thus African.



I agree with you, KM!

The African elephant is also "sway back" and the Asian elephant is more "hump back" ... They definitely both look like African elephants to me too!

All the best,
Richard

Thanks for the great review, Andi!

I like the "inside" views.

Thanks for the pictures and the great review, Andi!

I agree with others that I like the looks of the old version better and it seems to be of better quality and finish too.  One can see how Playmobil has taken money out of the new version.
