Down a lonely road in S.W. Victoria, Australia there is an odd looking lump that is called Mt Elephant. Just why it is called a mountain or why it is named after an elephant are open to speculation. It does not appear to resemble either.
I guess it fits Ailsa’s definitions on Where’s My BackPack : ‘The Oxford English Dictionary settles for something suitably vague: “a natural elevation of the earth surface rising more or less abruptly from the surrounding level and attaining an altitude which, relatively to the adjacent elevation, is impressive or notable.” Merriam-Webster doesn’t do any better: “a landmass that projects conspicuously above its surroundings and is higher than a hill.” Look up ‘hill’ in the same dictionary and you will find that it is described, helpfully, as “lower than a mountain.” ‘ It is definitely rising abruptly from the surrounding level and, in such flat country, it does attain a notable elevation – definitely no snow though.
