Why don't we use an Elephant | [mastadon] as storage media?

Think of the advantages:
1) They never forget - unlike HDDs and SSDs.
2) They are very difficult to steal.
3) The lifespan of the average Elephant | [mastadon] is 60 years (or 48 for the cheaper Chinese copies); compare that with HDD (3 ~ 5 years), and SSD (warranted for 10 years).
4) Incredibly rugged and durable.
5) Very low power consumption.
6) Media duplication is built in (though slow due to large size).

OK, there is a disadvantage: They do tend to generate huge amounts of VB and Python code - but that's probably good for your roses anyway!
