A merphant is a mermaid-elephant. It has the head and torso of an elephant, with a fish tail. Note that "ele-maid" would be incorrect, since this would be a lady with an elephant's behind.
Merphant can usually be found editing articles on the topics of art, music, computers, and other random silly articles on things like noodles and doodles.
Merphant has written some tools for Wikipedia, including the automated "Are you a Wikipediholic?" test and a wikicode to HTML converter.
