Yep, sorry buddy but as explained to the other guy who wanted to have a greater DLC elephant, it doesn’t work this way with the Turan caravan animals. You can either keep your greater animal as a combat pet or turn it to a DLC caravan rhino/elephant which will have weaker stats but many slots.
Is there an official statement from Funcom on this? I find it… odd that they would have recipes for both the normal rhino and the greater rhino to turn them both into the exact same rhino with a skin. Yet every other pet with a skin is still a greater pet with a skin (elephant excluded as it falls into the same DLC as the rhino).
