Once elephants came in two colours: black or white.
They loved all other creatures - but each set wanted to exterminate the elephants that were not the same as themselves.
Peace-loving individuals ran and hid in the deepest jungle, and battle commenced.
The war-mongers 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.
