* In ''Series/WalkingWithBeasts'', honorability seems to increase in the proboscidean family tree as it gets closer to modern elephants:
** In ''Mammoth Journey'', female woolly mammoths and their young live in family groups that stick together and quietly help each other when facing predators and climatic hardships. The most unprovoked aggression seen consists of an adult male on heat chasing a bison herd away with a mildly threatening trotting and an old male scaring two cave lions out of his way when he migrates south. Said lions are feeding on a human carcass.
** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deinotheriidae Deinotheres]] in ''Next of Kin'', in contrast, are sadistic bullies that seem to revel on [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman chasing hominids]] out of waterholes or because they are on heat. Bear in mind that this is as much elephantine behavior as the one exhibited by the mammoths. The series gives all positive traits to one lineage and all negative traits to the other, who also happens to be [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute the uglier, less elephant-looking one.]]
** Goofy-looking [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moeritherium moeritheres]] in ''Whale Killer'' are [[GentleGiant perfect pacifists]] that don't really look or act like elephants. One is chased by the threatening ''Basilosaurus'', but unlike most prey animals in the series it is given the chance to escape.
