Fun Fact

The Elephant is the largest existing land animal. Distinct features of all elephants include a long trunk, tusks, large ear flaps, massive legs, and tough but sensitive skin.
The trunk, also called proboscis, is used for breathing, bringing food and water to the mouth, and grasping objects.
