There are estimated to be more than 3,500 Bornean pygmy elephants in Borneo, Malaysia, where they were confirmed as being a separate sub-species in September 2003, following DNA research funded by the World Wildlife Fund.This officially increases the number of sub-species of the Asian elephant to four, along with Sri Lankan, Indian and Sumatran. See 'Largest mammal on land' for comparisons to the African elephant (Loxodonta africana).See note from J.Payne on the Latin name "Strictly speaking, in scientific circles, it does not yet have a latin name, because the recently published data have not been used in a scientific paper to argue that there should be a special name for this type of elephant. However, it can be called Elephas maximums borneensis, because that was the name used for the Borneo elephant in a paper published in 1950 in Ceylon."The tusks (in the males only) measure 0.5 - 1.7 m (1 ft 6 in-5 ft 6 in) long and weigh up to 15 kg (33 lb).

7972First skin-breathing mammalJulia Creek dunnartfirstAustraliaThe first species of mammal shown to breathe through its skin, at least for part of its life, is the Julia Creek dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi), a tiny species of Australian marsupial mouse. McGill University (Australia) physiologist Dr Jacopo Mortola (Canada) has discovered that although as an adult this shrew-like marsupial breathes through its lungs like other mammals, when first born it is so small – only 4 mm (0.15 in) long – that its muscles are too weak to inflate its lungs. Consequently, it absorbs oxygen directly through its skin, a process continuing until it leaves its mother's pouch, by which time it is large enough to inflate its lungs.
