Description

Asian elephant, female figurine #14753

Elephants have extremely flexible and strong trunks with 150,000 muscle fascicles. African elephants have two "gripping fingers" at the tip of the trunk, whereas Asian elephants only have one.

The trunk of an elephant is as versatile as a Swiss army knife. Not only can the elephant smell really well with it, it uses it to suck in water, steady itself, lift trees up high, or spray itself with cool mud. The elephant eats by wrapping its trunk around leaves and grasses, whereby it plucks them from the tree and feeds them into its mouth. A grown animal devours up to 150 kg of green foliage a day. Elephants can even pronounce human-like words with their trunks. To do this, they put their trunks in the mouth and place it on the tongue.

Fun fact: Elephants can lift objects weighing up to 300 kg with their trunks.

Scientific name: Elephas maximus
Global home: Asia
Conservation status: Endangered
Primary habitat: Subtropical Forest

Dimensions: 5.1 x 2.2 x 3.3 inch (W x D x H)

Reviews

Store is jam-packed with lots of things for everything! You name it, they've probably got it plus more! Prices are very reasonable and it's not often you would walk out of Sunny's without purchasing
something.

Kids love it here for their range of affordable toys.

Great little store with a little bit of everything, reasonably priced.

We struck a rainy day while in Whangamata so I brought

some crayons, x3 colouring books, indoor pop up tent, bubbles, body wash and x3 water guns,

probably cost less than $70 for everything.

Very nice customer service here. When you need assistance to find something they're very helpful. Awesome place to pick up a few household products and good quality phone accessories etc. There is something for everyone and good prices you can afford.

Great range of products, covering almost every
category. Dedicated fishing, boating accessories  and camping areas, flasher rigs, breakaway
sinkers, poppers, lures, anchors, rod holders, butane and so much more. Great
value and worth a look.

Staff are always polite and friendly.  Arrived as they were shutting up one night.
No bother. Allowed me to shoot around and get me new cable.  Great range of stuff too. From toys to
hardware to lollies and art supplies.
