An extremely thirsty elephant was captured discreetly procuring water from a sink at a campsite in Botswana.
The clever mammal was observed using its long trunk to sip water and then directing the water into its mouth by splashing.
Tourists who were utilizing the shower became startled when the sizable elephant, which had been blocking the restroom entrance, suddenly made an appearance.
They watched in amazement as the resourceful creature manipulated the faucet to release a substantial amount of water for itself.
According to the South African tourists, they waited for over two hours for the elephant to leave before they felt safe enough to act. They shared that after taking a shower, they were about to return to their camp when the elephant obstructed their path.
Although there were available watering holes, it appeared that the elephant preferred using the faucet due to its ease of use. Unlike humans, elephants employ their trunks to assist with drinking. They partially suck the water into their trunks before expelling it into their mouths.
An elephant’s trunk, composed of its upper lip and nose, serves multiple functions including grasping, sensing, and smelling objects. Elephants employ their trunks for a range of activities, including picking up food, using water to squirt into their mouths, as well as greetings, petting, threats, and dusting their bodies.
