African elephants have two finger-like features on the end of their trunk that they can use to grab small items
Elephants use their trunks for smelling, breathing, trumpeting, drinking, and also for grabbing things. The trunk alone contains about 100,000 different muscles.
Females play a key role in an elephant herd. The herd is typically composed of up to ten females and their young.
African elephants are capable of making a wide variety of vocal sounds, such as grunts, purrs, bellows, whistles, and the obvious trumpeting. Elephants are also capable of making low frequency sounds that we cannot hear.
