An Asian rake-tusked elephant (Deinotherium giganteum) is a species of elephant relative that is found throughout the open scrublands of Southeast Asia. It was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and reintroduced to Southeast Asia by SciiFii's conservationists to help boost Southeast Asia's collapsing biodiversity and to allow extinct animals to retain their own ecological niches. It is much larger and taller than the African rake-tusked elephant. The conservation status of the Asian rake-tusked elephant is Vulnerable due to poaching and some habitat loss, but conservationists are trying to help save this species, and, like Asian elephants, the population trend of Asian rake-tusked elephants is increasing thanks to conservation efforts.
