Two pygmy elephants cross the road in Taliwas forest on Malaysia's Sabah state on Borneo Island in this July 21, 2005 file photo. Borneo's pygmy elephants may be descendants of an extinct Javan elephant race, saved by chance by an 18th century ruler, according to a new study released April 17, 2008. The study suggests that a small number of opposite-sex elephants can produce a thriving progeny of thousands if left undisturbed on an island, giving fresh hope to conservationists trying to protect nearly extinct species of large mammals.
