First appearances

v6.1.0 DEVR1

Elephants are tamable neutral mobs found in the Overworld. Mammoths are larger variants of elephants found in cold biomes.


Natural generation

Elephants spawn on opaque blocks at light levels of 9 or more with a large block space above. Mammoths spawn in cold taiga, ice plains, ice mountains and ice spikes biomes.


Elephants are very large mobs that have many distinctive features, most noticeably their large tusks and trunk. The African elephant is bigger than the Asian elephant.

The two mammoths are much larger than the elephant species. They are covered in either grey or brown fur, and have much longer tusks. Unlike elephants, mammoths have a "hump" on their head.


Elephants and mammoths drop 0-2 hide. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

If chested, wearing a harness/platform or were wearing tusks etc., they will drop anything equipped.


Elephants and mammoths act like passive mobs; they wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and staying out of water. They will attack the player or other mobs if provoked. They will only attack you on Easy difficulty or higher. Elephants and mammoths can be heard trumpeting often, and occasionally, they will flap their ears and sway their trunks back and forth.

Like other baby animals, elephant or mammoth calves will follow adults. Calves will also attack you if provoked.


  • Since elephants and mammoths are neutral mobs, it should be advised to play on Peaceful difficulty, as elephants and mammoths have rather high attack damage.
  • They are quite slow mobs, much like ents, so it's not always necessary to run away after attacking them.
  • It is best to kill them with an iron or better sword due to their high health points.


While not being very fast when it comes to speed, elephants and mammoths are still one of the most useful mounts in Mo' Creatures. They cannot fit through single or more block-wide openings. Elephants/mammoths also be used to climb hills, as they can jump high enough to clear up to five or six block heights.


Taming calf

Giving an elephant calf cake. Five cakes are needed in order to tame a calf.

To tame an elephant or mammoth, the player needs to right-click on a baby elephant (calf) with either ten sugar lumps or five cakes. Once you have given an elephant or mammoth calf the food items, the naming screen will appear. A tamed elephant or mammoth can be renamed with a book, name tag or medallion. After about 4-7 Minecraft days, the tamed elephant or mammoth will be fully grown and will be able to use equipment.

Tamed elephants and mammoths can be healed by feeding them bread, hay stacks or baked potatoes.


Tamed elephants or mammoths can be equipped with an elephant harness, mammoth platform, tusks, and an elephant chest. Calves cannot be equipped with anything.


Mammoth sitting

Unlike many other mobs that can be ridden, elephants cannot be given a saddle. Instead the player has to equip the elephant/mammoth with an elephant harness or mammoth platform. These items allows the player to ride an elephant or mammoth. It can only be placed on tamed, adult elephants or mammoths. It also allows extra items to be added to the elephant or mammoth. Only one player can go on the harness, but a mammoth platform can be used for two players.

If the player 'sneaks' near a tamed elephant or mammoth (shift key by default), it will sit for a short period of time. You can sit on the elephant or mammoth by right-clicking on it. To dismount your elephant or mammoth, press the shift key again.

If a whip is used on an elephant or mammoth whilst riding it, they will gain a short speed boost, and will also ram into any mobs in their way.


An elephant chest can be given to an elephant or a mammoth by right-clicking on the elephant/mammoth with the chest in hand, and afterwards the chest cannot be removed, except by killing the elephant/mammoth, using shears, or by placing the elephant or mammoth in a pet amulet. Upon death, the elephant or mammoth will drop the attached elephant chest(s) and its contents.


An elephant garment and elephant howdah can be given to a tamed Asian elephant by right-clicking on the elephant. They are purely decorational items. They can only be removed by killing the elephant, placing it in a pet amulet or with shears. Upon death, the elephant will drop the garment and howdah.

Breaking blocks

Tusks can be given an elephant or mammoth so they can break blocks. There are three different kinds of tusks: wooden tusks, iron tusks, and diamond tusks. Tusks can be equipped by right-clicking on the tamed adult elephant or mammoth, and can be removed by right-clicking on the elephant or mammoth with a pickaxe or shears. Mammoths are more effective at breaking blocks than elephants.

In multiplayer, elephants or mammoths wearing tusks will not destroy blocks to prevent griefing.



The four natural types of elephants and mammoths.

Elephants and mammoths will typically spawn using one of four different skins. Skins include grey skin, dark grey skin, brown fur, and grey-black fur.

The biome determines the skin used:

  • Snowy biomes will have 100% grey-black fur or brown fur.
  • Other biomes will have 100% grey skin or dark grey skin.

Elephants drop hide.

A calf elephant can be tamed by giving it 10 sugar lumps or 5 cakes.

Tamed elephants are healed with baked potatoes, bread or hay stacks.

Indian elephants can be given a special luxurious garment. 

In addition to the garment, a nice throne can then be given to the elephant.

Two chest sets can be put on each elephant, allowing it to carry inventory.

A key is used to open the inventory.

Mammoths can also carry two extra regular chests.

Three different kinds of tusk reinforcements can be crafted: wood, iron and diamond.

They can be given to tamed adult elephants and mammoths, and taken off with a pickaxe. 

While wearing them reinforcement and ridden by the player, they will break blocks.

(However that feature is disabled by default in multiplayer, to prevent griefing).

Mammoths are more effective at breaking blocks than elephants.

A harness can be put on tamed adult elephants. 

If a player 'sneaks' near their elephant, it will sit for a short time, where it can be mounted.

To dismount an elephant, the rider has to make it sit first and then it can be dismounted.

A platform can be put on the Songhua mammoth, allowing them to carry a second player. 

To have a passenger, first the rider makes the mammoth sit, then the second player 'sneaks' while close to the mammoth.

The second player can dismount the mammoth by pressing the sneak key.


  • Elephants and mammoths are the largest mobs in Mo' Creatures, although mother and tier 2 wyverns can grow bigger than Asian and African elephants.
  • Currently, there is no food item that can be given to elephant calves that can make them grow faster.
  • It is easier and more recommended to tame elephant calves with sugar lumps, as cakes are more expensive to craft.
