Caption

An African elephant (Loxodonta africana) using its trunk to collect water. An elephant's trunk contains over 40,000 muscles, divided into as many as 150,000 individual units. It is often called nature's most versatile appendage. The trunk, which has no bones, is used for breathing, smelling, touching, producing sound and grasping. It is also extremely strong enabling the animal to lift objects weighing in excess of 700lbs. African elephants are herbivores and are the world's largest and heaviest land animals. Adult females and their young live in large social groups, whereas males lead largely solitary lives. Filmed at Chudop waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.
