A Very Long Nose

TrunkThis pictured startled me in a way when I first saw it.   It probably sounds completely crazy, but I guess I didn’t realize that the elephants trunk is really it’s nose and it has two nostrils.    I don’t think I ever thought about that before…. and certainly never saw a picture of the trunk from this angle before.  DUH!   For some reason I just thought of it as one ‘tube’ that the elephant used to suck up water to spew all over people, and whatever else he uses it for.  I know they use it to pick up things and put them into it’s mouth, but still…. I just never thought about it before.  

Strange…..  I feel so dumb.
