We need to remember that the island of Sri Lanka has been connected to mainland India at many times in geological history. Roughly 10,000 years ago when the world was still in the grip of the last ice age, lot of sea water was locked up in ice in various parts of the earth. With lowered sea levels, shallow seas became exposed as land bridges, connecting various lands all around the world. Land bridge over Bering Straits that connected Siberia and Alaska is the most famous one. Land bridge over Palk Straits between Tamilnadu and Sri Lanka is another one. Elephants and other animals from India must have just walked over to Sri Lanka. When ice age ended and new seas emerged (7000 years ago), they were trapped in the island.
