The trunk of an elephant is as versatile as a Swiss knife. Not only does it smell very good with it, it also sucks in water, holds on to it, lifts trees or throws cool mud at it. To eat, the elephant grasps the leaves and grasses with its trunk, plucks them from the tree and carries them into its mouth. A full-grown animal eats up to 150 kilograms of greenery per day. Elephants can even produce human-like words with their trunks. To do this, they put their trunk in their mouth and place it on their tongue.
