Elder mokele-mbembe are the greatest of their kind. These massive creatures are known to ford across bays and seas just to make their way to the great jungles on the continents and swim at leisure among rivers, lakes and swamps devouring all manner of vegetation. Even the most poisonous plants and fungi barely phase these herbivores. Few natural predators can slay an elder mokele-mbembe and whole tribes of humanoids have built small villages on their backs using them as transportation from island to island or river bank to river bank. These creatures are known to get angry in mating season and will happily knock over boats or canoes that they deem are in their territory. These beasts prefer to sleep mostly submerged, with the nostrils on the top of their heads gently poking above the water. Those who are not aware of this might think that they have caught a sleeping soft shell turtle and many have been slain thinking they caught themselves a tasty morsel.
The only thing that has successfully killed these titanic beasts are tyrannosaurus rexes and packs of other huge predators. If they can get a hold of the beast via biting or grappling they can stop a majority of its deadly attacks while the rest of the pack disembowel the mighty sauropod from both flanks. Still, it can take an entire hour to kill the elder mokele-mbembe.
