Ooooh, a Heffulumph with a single "finger" on the tip of its trunk (characteristic of the Asian elephant; African elephants have two "fingers")! A highly sensitive and versatile appendage, an elephant's trunk can wipe a tear, scoop up a peanut from your palm or spray water on a hot day. It can also help create infrasonic rumbles, screams or trumpets such that heffulumphs can communicate with each other over several kilometres. Like whales and hippos, elephants communicate frequently through low frequency sounds. Baby elephants, incidentally, suck on their trunks, not unlike human babies who suck on their thumbs :-)
