  Asian Elephant
Asian elephants are much smaller, weighing between 6,615 and 11,020 pounds at a height of about 7 to 12 feet compared to the 8,820 to 15,430 at 10 to 13 feet of the African elephant.
Asian elephants are less prone to poaching (killing elephants for ivory tusks) because few males (and no females) grow tusks.
When a young Asian elephant is stressed and nervous they will go to an adult and place the tip of their trunk in the adults mouth.

 Asian Collection
Asian plants are fascinating, not only for their diversity, but also because they bear a close resemblance to our native Eastern United States flora.
Asian Valley offers dramatic views, bog primulas that bloom in spring, and the rare dove tree.
Many plants native to China and other East Asian countries were first introduced to the United States in the late 1800's, but the original collections did not represent the full range of natural genetic diversity found within a given species.

 Asian Elephants - National Zoo| FONZ
Asian elephants are endangered in the wild, where perhaps only 30,000 still live in forests of south and southeast Asia.
They flap their large ears, swing their trunks in the air to sense and move things, munch on hay and fresh produce, throw sand on their backs or get in the pool to keep cool in summer, interact with the other elephants, play, participate in training sessions, and get groomed by keepers.
You can see the Zoo's Asian elephants live on our cam, which sometimes looks to their outdoor habitat and other times looks into Shanthi and Kandula's indoor enclosure.

Asian immigrant owners and workers who came to the U.S. since the late 1960s have contributed to the proliferation of ethnic businesses, enclave economies, and residential communities.

 Welcome to Asian Spirit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
In 1996, Asian Spirit opened the gateway to the world's famous island Boracay when it started its regular air services to Caticlan airport utilizing it's 47-seater De Havilland Dash of Canada.
ASian Spirit's distribution network drastically expanded as it opened major hubs to bridge small and the "sleepy" yet tourist-potential destination as it flies to airports not serviced by the other national carriers.
In January 2003, the airline finally received its congressional franchise making it the country's fourth flag carrier, enabling it to expand its services both in the domestic and international regions as well as to receive incentives from the government in its effort to boost air services to various destinations in the country.

 Asian-Nation : Asian American History, Demographics, & Issues
While Asian Americans "only" make up about 5% of the U.S.'s population (as of May 2005), we are one of the fastest growing racial/ethnic groups (in terms of percentage increase) in the U.S. The Asian American community has received a lot of scrutiny over the years but in many ways, still remains misunderstood.
First, I define "Asian Americans" as the population living in the U.S. who self-identify as having Asian or Pacific Islander ancestry, in whole or in part, regardless of whether they're U.S.- or foreign-born, a U.S. citizen or not, length of residence, or in the U.S. legally or illegally.
Of course, being "Asian" is not necessarily the same as being "Asian American" and I focus on this distinction throughout Asian-Nation.
