Paleoloxodon is one of if not the largest mammals to ever exist. Rivaling most nonsauropod dinosaurs in size, these giants are related to modern elephants. Ark is no stranger to giant mammals, so why not add the biggest of the bunch to this vast, jungle-covered map? \ Abilities: -Trample: Not much smaller than a bronto, standing a good head taller than spinos, rexes, mammoths, and paracers, paleoloxodon are able to crash through foliage and structures alike. Once on the move, nothing can get in their way. -Terraformer: A great farming tame, these giants can water crops with their trunks, hold enormous quantities of goods, and plow fields with their tusks. Using their long tusks they penetrate deep into the soil, allowing for richer nutrients. This allows crops to grow faster and without as much water. -Siege beast: A force to be reckoned with, these giants can tank heavy damage from creatures and weapons alike. When equipped with their custom war saddle they prove to be absolute monsters on the battlefield. -Submarine: An unlikely animal to take in the water, paleoloxodon are great swimmers that can stay in water for as long they need to if it's able to keep their trunk above the water. When submerged it'll extend its trunk up, and given its very slow draining stamina allows it to cross very large bodies of water with ease. -Charge: Normally slow, a sudden burst of charging speed allows it to break through structures -Item mover: Like the rhynio, it's able to pick up and carry objects with its trunk during moving trips Drops: Raw meat, raw prime meat, hide, and paleoloxodon tusks. These tusks can be used in crafting to make a superior alternative to pikes and spears. Taming method: Paleoloxodon are generally passive, but are territorial when approached. Passively tamed with rare flowers and honey, one must be careful during the process. An annoyed elephant will either squash or pick us and toss any unfortunate survivor. Spawn locations: Dense jungles, near any sources of water, and the maps desert regions. Other notes: Please feel free to add ideas or, if so inclined, drop your very own artwork or dossier. As always I'll take what I can into consideration.
