Maybe Mammoths could do a trample capture similar to the Mad Elephant's rampage in Mad Elephant Chess. Trample capture is where the Mammoth goes the full 2 squares, but instead of simply capturing the piece at the destination it also tramples over the piece in between. Sucking pieces up its trunk and storing them inside it, only to blow them out on a later move, a temporary form of rifle capture, might be a hilarious move possibility, as you could easily find another use for disk pieces, storing them under the Mammoth disk.
