Elephants are the biggest land dwellers still existent on earth currently. The gigantic proportions of these mammals, are enhanced by their unique appearances that include long flexible noses and dangerous ivory tusks.

This myth has been solidified by the old Asian legends and historical stories of elephant chariots used in war; not to mention the Hindu elephant-headed god of knowledge and new beginnings - Ganesha. Ancient Indian legends do not mention only gods, they also describe evil elephant-headed demons who were like enraged elephants; showing the importance that Asian elephants have always had within the subcontinent. Similar legends and stories are seen among the native African tribes, who also interact with African Elephants.
