There are more similarities in evolution between humans and elephants than humans and mice. Over 6,000 genes are similar. Elephant and human lineages slower nucleotide substitution rates than the  tenrec and mouse lineages. Elephants brain oxygen consumption is the biggest in Elephants and second biggest in humans.
