Buddhist - A royal elephant. This beast had six tusks and a white body with a red head and feet. A jealous queen persuaded a minister to kill the elephant and bring her a pair of its tusks. The hunter's saw would not penetrate the tusks so Shaddanta pulled them out himself. The queen, overcome with grief when she was given the tusks, died that day. At times, identified as Shaddanta.
