  10. 10. <ul><li>- The trunk is a union of a nose and upper lip. </li></ul><ul><li>African elephants are equipped with two fingerlike projections at the tip of their trunk, while Asians have only one. </li></ul><ul><li>- This organ consists of 100,000 muscle units. </li></ul><ul><li>The elephant's trunk is sensitive enough to pick up a single blade of grass, yet strong enough to rip the branches off a tree. </li></ul><ul><li>The trunk is also used for drinking. Elephants suck water up into the trunk—up to 14 liters at a time—and then blow it into their mouths. </li></ul><ul><li>Elephants also suck up water to spray on their bodies during bathing. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The tusks of an elephant are its second upper incisors </li></ul><ul><li>( teeth). </li></ul><ul><li>Tusks grow continuously; an adult male's tusks grow about 18 cm a year. </li></ul><ul><li>Tusks are used to dig for water, salt and roots and to debark trees . </li></ul><ul><li>Tusks are also used to move trees and branches when clearing a path. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, they are used for marking trees to establish a territory, and occasionally as weapons. </li></ul>
