Well, that is the answer to yesterday’s question.
Elephant trunks are amazing tools. They are an extension of the nose which the Elephants use to lift anything from tiny to very heavy objects, to suck up water and deposit it into their own mouths. At the end of the trunk are prehensile (independent movable) lips which can be used almost as fingers to perform very delicate operations.
Try to do any of this with your nose 🙂
