Description

Discover the incredible ways elephants use their trunks to sense and communicate information and emotion.

--

As a breeze blows through the savannah, a snake-shaped tube stretches into the air and scans the horizon like a periscope. But its not seeing its sniffing. Containing no bones and an estimated 40,000 muscles, an elephant trunk is one of the most versatile tools in the animal kingdom. Chase LaDue and Bruce Schulte detail the incredible capabilities of these agile appendages.

Lesson by Chase LaDue and Bruce A. Schulte, directed by Petya Zlateva.
