African elephants are the largest land animals on earth. According to biologists, the elephant's trunk may have over forty thousand individual muscles in it, making it sensitive enough to pick up a single blade of grass, yet strong enough to rip the branches off a tree.
Some sources indicate that the correct number of muscles in an elephant's trunk is closer to one hundred thousand.
