No foodstuff is too rich, hot or sour for the Elephanilla. This is the first thing that budding keepers come to realise, or maybe the second after fences are put up to keep the other Piñatas back for their own safety.

In Game Discription: Elephanillas can never forget. Imagine remembering all your most embarrassing moments in stomach-turning detail. This may explain their considered pace of life; best to think now than have to regret forever!

Other Information

The easiest and most cost efficent way to attract an Elephanilla into the garden is by growing 16 corn seeds, opposed to trying to get 16 monkeynuts, blackberries, or gooseberries. Corn seeds are cheaper then gooseberry, blackberry, or monkeynut seeds, are much faster to grow, and will last much longer before becoming rotten.

If the Elephanilla stands on another pinata it will squish them, and make them unhappy. So keep a good supply of joy candy to keep your smaller pinatas happy.

Commonly asked questions
Any tips for meeting Elephanilla resident requirements?

The higher-level pinatas are a bit challenging to attract, because it does take several visits, and you won't necessarily get the same one visiting, next visit.

One option is to start a new garden, designed to attract only that species. This should help the Elephanilla to show up every day, instead of competing with many other wilds who are also attracted to the garden. Make sure to always maintain well more than 16 blackberries, ears of corn, gooseberries or monkeynuts in the garden, as it eats what's attracting it, so the Visit requirements are always met, or the Elephanilla will leave your garden early, drawing out the number of visits needed. A good way to do this is to plant 16 corn (or buy 16 blackberries) and put them in a fenced area so the Elephanilla can't reach them. This way there will always be enough food for it to stay. Remember you will probably need at least wooden picket fence to keep it away. (Possibly even more).

If you've got a visitor that only needs to meet one or two more requirements, try not to distract it with other items that it no longer is required to eat. Try to focus on keeping lots of what it needs on hand, near the corner it shows up on and move the other items away from where it enters. This way, it will hopefully eat only what it needs, instead of wasting the day devouring other things.

With a bit of patience, and attention to what it needs, you should eventually get one of these plodding pinatas to move in. (If all else fails, you could just get a friend to ship you one.) View thread
