Takeaways:

  • A study from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science shows that the folded skin at the front of an elephant’s trunk adds to their mobility and helps them stretch and pick up faraway objects.
  • They’ve found that these findings could help improve scientific efforts to protect elephant populations and could also inspire innovations in the field of robotics.
  • Covering robots in a malleable material, similar to the skin of an elephant trunk, could maintain their flexibility and add to their strength and sturdiness.
