33 long tons is about five-and-a-half times as heavy as an Elephant.
In other words, the weight of an Elephant is 0.180 times that amount.
(for African bush elephant, Loxodonta africana) (Adult, bull)
A bull African bush elephant weighs about 6 long tons. Among African elephants, both males and females have tusks (whereas female Asian elephants, Elephas maximus, do not have tusks) which can grow to 3 m (10 ft) and weigh up to 0.089 long tons.
