Dora the Deinotherium giganteum

Terrible Beast, May You Rest in Peace

"Everywhere I'm looking now

I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace
You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away"

-Beyonce

The Spectacular life of Dora

Dora was born 15 million years ago. She got her angel wings 1 million years ago because of climate change. She lived from the Micone period to the early Pleistocene period. She and her family lived in parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. The climate was somewhat warm when she was on this planet. Her nickname was "Terrible Beast" and "Hoe Tusker". One of her many special features was that her tusks come out of her lower jaw instead of upper like her relatives the, the elephant family.

Her Dear Relatives

One of Dora's very close relatives are the elephant family. They are still living today. They mourn every day for Dora. The town is having a funeral ceremony on Saturday, May third at ten o'clock in the morning at the local funeral home.
