South American Dolphelephant
- Main article: South American Dolphelephant hoax
The South American Dolphelephant, or Subterranean Dolphelephant, is a fictitious species of Dolphelephant that were said lived in caverns in the lowest parts of the ocean around South America and lagoons in Brazil and the Amazon. It was created as a hoax to bring tourists to South America at the time when tourism was booming in Australia due to their aquatic dolphin/elephant hybrid that had become so famous. The hoax was discovered when a tourist accidentally fell off the railing at a supposed "Subterranean Dolphelephant Nesting Ground". The tourist bonked their foot on a metallic surface, releazing that it was a fake animatronic Dolphelephant used to simulate an actual aquatic Dolphelephant. The company creating the hoax was sued and lost the case.
