    This is the first step of elephants combining themselfes to become one masive elephant called the meglafaunt. The meglafaunt killed most of the dinasaurs before being hit by the mexican meteorite. Today elephants dont have enough habitat animore to form a meglafaunt, but nice to see the still trie.
