PICTURES OF THE WEEK – LITTLE TRUNK

This small Elephant calf is in the process of learning how to ‘operate’ its trunk.

For the first six to nine month of their life the Ellie babies do not know what to do with this incredible versatile tool which functions as a hand, a nose, and a drinking cup (not as a straw because they do not drink through their trunk. They just use it to suck water into it and the deposit the water into their mouth).

Enjoy your upcoming week!
