Wont hurt to know...
"The Asian Elephant (also known as the Indian Elephant) lives in India, Malaysia, Sumatra, and Sri Lanka.  Their life span is up to 70 years. This mammal has very strong social bonds and lives in family groups headed by a female (called a cow). Males (called bulls) occasionally join the group. Elephants are excellent swimmers. Asian Elephants average about 8 feet (2.5 m) tall at the shoulder (smaller than African Elephants).Elephants breathe through two nostrils at the end of their trunk, which is an extension of the nose. The trunk is also used to get water and food. To get water, the elephant sucks water into the trunk, then curls the trunk towards the mouth and squirts the water into it. The trunk has a prehensile (grasping) extension at the tip, which it uses like a finger or scoop." via enchantedlearning
