Elephants are large tamable mobs found in the Overworld.

Mammoths are larger variants of elephants.


Natural generationEdit

African and Asian elephants spawn on opaque blocks at light levels of 9 or more with a large block space above, often in herds of 3. African elephants also spawn in deserts, and Asian elephants tend to spawn in jungles.

Mammoths spawn in cold taiga, ice plains, ice mountains and ice spikes biomes, in herds of 3. Elephants spawned using the elephant spawn egg will spawn as a mammoth.


Elephants and mammoths drop 0–2 hide upon death. The drops are affected by the Looting enchantment. They drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

They will also drop anything equipped, as well as the contents of their inventory, if wearing a chest.


Elephants and mammoths are neutral mobs, and will attack you or mobs if provoked. Elephants and mammoths wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and staying out of water. Elephants can be heard trumpeting often.
Taming calf

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

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

An elephant or mammoth can be tamed by feeding a calf 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 wear items such as a harness, howdah, garment, tusks, and more.

Tamed elephants and mammoths can be healed with sugar lumps, bread, wheat, and baked potatoes.


Despite 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, however, fit through single or more block-wide openings due to their size. Elephants and mammoths can also be used to climb hills, as they can jump high enough to clear up to five or six block heights.


Tamed elephants or mammoths can wear an elephant harness, three kinds of tusks, and an elephant chest. A Songhua River mammoth can also wear a mammoth platform to carry an extra player. Calves cannot be equipped with anything.

Elephants can also wear extra items, but only Asian elephants can wear them. These include the elephant garment and elephant howdah. They serve no purpose other than for decoration.

Equipment can only be removed by killing the carrier, placing the mob in a pet amulet, or with shears. Upon death, the elephant or mammoth will drop the worn item(s).


Mammoth sitting

Unlike many other mobs that can be ridden, elephants cannot be given a saddle. Instead, the player has to equip the elephant or mammoth with a harness or mammoth platform. These items allow the player to ride an elephant or mammoth. It can only be placed on tamed adult elephants or mammoths.

The harness 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 you 'sneak' near a tamed elephant or mammoth (shift key by default), it will sit for a short period of time. You can sit on it with right-click. To dismount your elephant or mammoth, press the shift key again.

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

Storage Edit

An elephant chest can be given to an elephant or a mammoth by right-clicking on them with it, and afterward, the chest cannot be removed, except by killing the carrier, using shears, or by placing the elephant or mammoth in a pet amulet.

Decoration Edit

An elephant garment and howdah can be equiped on an asian elephant after placing a harness on it.

Breaking blocks Edit

Tusks can be given to 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. This is to prevent griefing.

Variations Edit


The four natural types of elephants and mammoths.

Elephants and mammoths will typically spawn using one of four different skins. Skins include grey (African elephant), dark grey (Asian elephant), brown fur (woolly mammoth), and grey-black fur (Songhua River mammoth).

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.

Trivia Edit

  • Elephants and mammoths are the largest mobs in Mo' Creatures, though mother wyverns 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.
  • In real life, elephants can't jump, despite being able to do so in-game.
    • Also, due to their skeletal structure, real life elephants aren't meant to carry heavy weight on their backs, despite elephants and mammoths in Mo' Creatures having no problem with how much equipment they wear or with the player being on their back. Most of the strength in a real life elephant, however, is in their neck, and some elephants end up with deformed or even broken backs as a result of years carrying tourists.
