42,000,000 grains is about three-fourths as heavy as a Hippopotamus
In other words, it's 0.7260 times the weight of a Hippopotamus, and the weight of a Hippopotamus is 1.380 times that amount.
(Hippopotamus amphibius) (adult, male)
The average weight of an adult male hippopotamus ranges from 57,900,000 grains. Appearances to the contrary, adult hippos cannot swim or float in water; they actually move by leaping and walking across lake bottoms at about 8 kph (5 mph).
