Elephants: In the Desert & Making Art

The lives of elephants are still a mystery. Can they even communicate telepathically? Let's hope we can learn more about them before they become extinct. And not all of them live in the jungle. Some of them even create art!

Some elephants live in the desert of Namibia. In BBC News, Rebecca Morelle quotes researcher Martyn Colbeck as saying, "Elephants normally drink every day, but the desert elephant has adapted to go up to five days without drinking. Just behind the tongue they have this little pouch?[which] allows the elephants to?store several liters of water?" They not only drink this water, they use it to give themselves cooling showers with their trunks.
