A well-hidden weapon
We’ve all heard at least one thing about elephants. Beyond their huge dimensions, they are clever animals who enjoy spending time with their family and sticking with their group. We also know elephants don’t prey on other creatures because they’re herbivores and only eat vegetation. However, there are a few things about an elephant that we don’t pay close attention to. Some parts of nature seem to escape our notice for some reason.
You are looking at the tail of an elephant up close. The tails of these animals are often overlooked since to their big legs, ears, and trunk, but it is, in fact, a strong weapon. On closer examination, what appear to be twine wires might be very thick hairs that cover the skin. Perhaps they employ their thick-haired tails as a defensive or bug-scaring weapon.
