8 Trunks

It is interesting that the elephant’s trunk is actually a nose. The trunk allows them to manipulate different objects to a higher degree. The trunk is powered by tens of thousands of muscles and muscle bundles. The elephant uses it to find food. Being completely underwater, the animal can breathe by exposing only the tip of its trunk.

They can learn to open locks. One of the most incredibly famous facts about elephants is that there are some elephants that have been taught to paint using their trunks. There have been instances where two elephants have worked together to escape; one faked a collapse while the other opened the locks for both of them to escape. That’s interesting, isn’t it?
