An elephant in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park has learned how to turn on a water tap. To drink, elephants siphon as much as a gallon and a half of water up their trunks before spraying it into their mouths. In drier months the trunk may be used to dig to water level. During a midday snooze an elephant curls its trunk neatly in its tusks. Equipped with thousands of muscles, the trunk can deftly pluck a leaf or uproot a tree. Covered with sen�sory hairs, it also feels the shape, tex�ture, and temperature of things. Last rites for a bull shot for crop raiding were observed by the Douglas-Hamilton�s in Manyara. As an experiment lain set the skeleton by a well used trail. A passing kinship group closed in. The tusks were mouthed and passed about, the bones lifted, carried, and dropped a hundred yards away. “It was an uncanny sight,” he says. Though recorded before, such behavior is unexplained. To lend a helping trunk is natural in elephant family life i nParis apartment. A mother and old�est daughter rescue a calf on a slippery mud bank. All females in the kin group, even teenagers, share in tending infants. The young are well protected, and may nurse as long as eight years�or until their tusks become too long for mother’s comfort. Two juveniles assist one an�other in a mud bath. The mud pack pro�tects against heat and insects. lain and his assistant Mhoja Burengo took an unexpected bath when they unsuccessfully tried to navigate a swol�len river while tracking an elephant. A towline rescued their Land-Rover. “A latticework of wrinkles”: The Roman scholar Pliny the Elder so described the elephant’s sagging skin. The inch-thick hide lacks sweat glands, and the animals rely on their well-veined ears as a cooling system. When severely overheated, they may withdraw water from their throats or stomachs to spray their ears.

Reducing Paint Fumes

Reducing Paint Fumes: A Volatile Question In the Los Angeles area, despite aggressive antismog programs, ten million people breathe some of the dirtiest air in the United States, say local officials. One surprising culprit paint, as they dry, paints and related products release 60 tons a day of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air, contributing to the region’s smog. That is equivalent to the smog-forming emissions of 1.8 million of L.A.’s six million vehicles. Officials have tightened restrictions on VOC emissions from paint over the past two decades, and recently approved regulations will help bring levels to their lowest point yet, removing 22 tons a day of VOCs by 2006.
