Male African Elephants can weigh up to 15,000 lbs.

Female African Elephants can weigh up to 8,000 lbs. Take the two weights and average them, making the "average" weight of any African elephant (male or female) 11,500 lbs.

1 Ton = 2,000 lbs

11, 500 lbs x 6 = 69,000 lbs or 34.5 Tons

Close, but no cigar.
