What happens when an elephant dies? Here is what happens: https://video.nationalgeographic.co...torial::add=WatchThis_20180921::rid=720689843
Day 2 is really very touching.
.........stops breathing and eating peanuts?
Still no updates
Check out the tusks on this boy!!
How does he get his trunk free of those tusks??
There are over 40,000 muscles in an elephants trunk. An elephant can move its trunk in almost every direction that includes twisting its trunk 180 degrees. The trunk itself can lift 300 kg about 660 Ib and an elephant with the help of its tusks cand lift and carry 500kg about 1100 Ib.
WOW! I've seen elephants roll up their trunks almost in a ball, but those tusks look so close together, it doesn't look like he has much room for maneuvering.
In short, don't park your car where an elephant wishes to go. LOL
That's for sure.
@Chris Any word form Sparky?
I ment from, stupid phone.
@Chris, We might need to make a MEGA Tusker Morph for this model.
Geeze, I wouldn't even hazard a guess at how much those weigh. That elephant must have some very strong neck muscles.
Here are some more big boys
Mega tuskers are not as common in the asian elephant but they do occur. Another morph to consider is a tuskless morph. Those are more common in the Asian elephant and less common in the African elephant.
Given the state of elephant populations today, being tuskless may have an evolutionary benefit to the species.
