The African Dolphelephant (also known as the Saudi Arabian Dolphelephant) is the most populous and commonly
seen species of Dolphelephant. It is a cross between a dolphin and an elephant, and is lacking some of both creatures' most important features, flippers and ears. The African Dolphelephant is usually located in Chad, Niger, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and several grasslands, plains, and savannahs. A few skeletons have even been found in the Sahara Desert as well as on Madagascar, proving that some African Dolphelephants have once lived on Madagascar and an unlucky few became lost in the desert. Certain African Dolphelephants have even been found near areas that are mostly populated with Asian Dolphelephants. African Dolphelephants are usually omnivorous.
- Main article: Social structure of the African Dolphelephant
The African Dolphelephant often travels in herds (sometimes called packs or schools) with the members of its family or close friends. These herds tend to consist of about fifteen Dolphelephants at a given time. The leader of the pack is the Alpha Male, alongside him his mate, the Beta Female. The other three important positions are the Gamma tribe fighter, which is given to the most violent of the herd, the Delta Hunter, which is given to the best at hunting birds and small rodents, the Omega Gatherer, which is given to the most skilled at picking fruits, vegetables, and barley, and the Kappa fisher, which is given to the most experienced at finding fish and swimming.
The other Dolphelephants in the herd are not given a position, and are simply following the Alpha Male. The social structure of the African Dolphelephant is similar to that of the Asian Dolphelephant. The social structure of the Asian Dolphelephants however has less positions as well as a Delta tribe fighter instead of a Gamma tribe fighter.
Though African Dolphelephants do not migrate in order to breed (as whales do) but are often found to leave Africa and end up in southern Europe, Saudi Arabia, and even India. Herds of Dolphelephants have migrated to Saudi Arabia in search of food over the past few years and Saudi Arabia has since become a breeding ground and known location for the African Dolphelephant. It is for this reason that some scientists call the African Dolphelephant the "Saudi Arabian Dolphelephant" as well as just the "Arabian Dolphelephant".
