Their an act that involves sucking water

            Their
trunks have over forty thousand muscles and tendons, which can lift objects
weighing up to four hundred pounds, and are also used for drinking, an act that
involves sucking water into the trunk and then spraying it into the mouth, as
well as for spraying down their backs as an act of body temperature control. Tusks
are present in both genders, and herds consist of related females, lead by the
eldest elephant known as a matriarch. Adult males are rarely present within the
herd, and lives alone until mating season. Females give birth to only one calf,
resulting from the longest known mammalian gestation period of twenty-two months.
