Mastodon project two, MP2, has the objective of finding how much mass could have been lifted by a mastodon and various other proboscidea.

Considerations:
            A. Concepts of mass, weight, length, time, distance, and so on
            B. Concept of force
            C. Application for a mastodon
                        1. How is the mass lifted?
                        2. What parts of the mastodon need to be considered?
            C. Application for an elephant - what can we learn from current Asian elephants?
