The only way Elephants can kiss!

Late afternoon on an island in the Chobe River, Botswana, two elephants were seen foraging when suddenly they both inserted their trunks into the other one’s mouth. They were either trying to kiss or practice mouth to mouth resuscitation!

Elephant Loxodonta africana

The largest land animal, Africa’s true King of Beasts, weighs up to 6000 kg (male) and 3500 kg (female), height 3.3 m (male) and 2.5 m (female). The trunk is a muscular extension of the upper lip containing the nostrils, and the tip is equipped with two finger-like projections for handling small objects. Huge ears, up to 1.5 m. Flapping ears on still, hot days helps cool blood flowing through network of veins on back surface. Tusks grow continuously, weighing up to 13 kg each and can reach a length of 2.5 m.
