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.

I swear there is some kind of magic coming from ESB, and it shows in every beautiful photo and every lovely post. Thank you so much, ESB family, for what you do! Your magic is traveling around the world to those who love you!!!

But what do they do with their tushes. Are they good for nibbling food etc?
Audrey saysFebruary 19, 2021 at 5:27 pm

You’re all very special people.

Of course our sweet Rana is sharing a picture of her beautiful tush and tongue. Tell her thank you for the close up from me. Her fuzzies are adorable as well.

Kat Blais saysFebruary 20, 2021 at 3:26 pm
An overall photo of her doesn’t do the fuzz justice, you can only see most of it up close.
Sallie saysFebruary 19, 2021 at 11:57 pm
Rana, I love your tush, which ever end it is . . .
