How do elephants use their trunks ?

1 Answer(s)

An elephant uses its long, flexible trunk to grasp objects, pluck leaves, break off branches and carry heavy objects like logs. Though the typical elephant is tough, it is very sensitive at the same time. Small, fingerlike projections and the tip of the trunk are in every elephant’s trunk.  Elephants use their trunks to drink water and splash water over themselves for a refreshing bath. When relaxing in the water, elephants use their trunks to breathe by using the tip of the trunk, In conclusion, the elephant uses its trunk as a nose for breathing and as a flexible tube-like mouth to drink water making the trunk multipurpose and essential for an elephant.
