40 tonnes is about six-and-a-half times as heavy as an Elephant
In other words, it's 6.6 times the weight of an Elephant, and the weight of an Elephant is 0.15 times that amount.
(for African bush elephant, Loxodonta africana) (Adult, bull)
A bull African bush elephant weighs about 6.10 tonnes. Among African elephants, both males and females have tusks (whereas female Asian elephants, Elephas maximus, do not have tusks) which can grow to 3 m (10 ft) and typically weigh about 4 tonnes
