    Elephants are too big to contain easily and are too intelligent to easily condition unlike horses and cattle. The main thing preventing it was just the law of diminishing returns. Elephants breed very slowly and live for a long time, only giving birth to one calf at a time, this made housing and breeding elephants far too costly compared to their actual use which was pretty much limited to beasts of burden, ceremonial centerpieces, and for their use in war. Pretty much all elephants that were used in this way were taken from the wild at a young age due to said immense cost.

    What can an elephant actually do though? If you hug its hind legs it can't reach you with its truck, and its too sluggish to get away while you repeatedly pommel it from behind. If you stand to the side of its hind legs then it won't even be able to hit you with a back kick. If it raises its leg to perform a stomp then all you have to do is back off until it finishes its slam, then move back in to continue punching.

    Elephants were used in war and failed. They don't move fast, they took too much food to eat, they were too intelligent. Elephants were also hard to slaughter and our ancestors no longer developed a taste for them just by how dangerous they are aggravated.

      Didn't someone screw over an elephant army by scaring them with burning pigs?

    Same reason zebras, onyx, wildebeest, or buffalo wasn't domesticated. They live in Africa and Africans lack the IQ and emotional empathy to even begin domestication of another species.

        Zebu were domesticated from aurochs by Indians. But you're probably right about the guineafowl.

          I should say the fact those two (zebu+guineafowl) live below the sahara doesn't mean sub-saharian africans had indeed been the ones to tame them. I'm just being autistic towards the poster I replied to.
