I would love to have a meaningful quote that I will pretend I came up with for this photo. Also that quote will have nothing to do with this photo whatsoever. But I don't want to waste your time and mine. So if you read this far, sorry for wasting your time. But regardless, I love this shot by @alecnguyen. A very talented photographer and an even better person.

Did you know that an elephant’s trunk is actually like a nose and upper lip smooshed together? Neither did we, until we started following Smithsonian.
You’re in college to learn, right? Learn cool stuff here.
We’re going to end #WorldElephantDay from @smithsonianzoo with a fun elephant fact: The Asian elephant’s iconic trunk is a fusion of the nose and upper lip. It has about 150,000 muscles and tendons that make elephants able to pick up something as small as a blade of grass or as heavy as a tree trunk. #WeSaveSpecies
