Once elephants came in two colours: black or white. They loved all other creatures -- but hated each other, and each wanted to exterminate the other. Peace-loving individuals ran and hid in the deepest jungle, and battle commenced. The warmongers all succeeded. For a long time it seemed that there were no elephants in the world at all, not of any colour. But then the descendants of the peace-loving ones emerged from the jungle, and by now they were all grey.
