Baby Elephant Learns To Use His Trunk. I Just Died From Too Much Cuteness.

Elephants have a keen sense of smell, up to 4 times stronger than bloodhounds and can smell water from miles away. Their trunks are stunted at birth and become more elongated within a few days, which is why calves will tread on their trunks until they get used to it. They will sometimes suck on their trunks for comfort just like human babies suck their thumbs.

The elephant’s trunk contains over 40,000 muscles, divided into as many as 150,000 individual units. That’s incredible!
