We’re back for EleFACT Friday!
Last week, we talked about elephant tusks. But have you heard of elephant tushes? It’s not what you think! Female Asian Elephants don’t have tusks, they have tushes, which are little tusks that seldom protrude more than an inch or two from the lip line. However, not every female Asian elephant has them. They are small and brittle, causing them to easily break.
Rana has an extra-long left tush with a notable notch in it. That’s her cute little tush and tongue in the photo- and let’s not forget the fuzzy hairs and rainbow that make the picture complete.
