Why do elephants have such long noses?

Have you every wondered why elephants have such a long nose?

It moves and wiggles like a garden hose.

They could use it to swing a baseball bat.

Or to hold their rolled up yoga mat.

What if they want to give you a high five?

They could reach out their nose to give it a try!

elephantDoes it take longer to sneeze, like a water slide at the park?

Down and around and loops in the dark!

What would you do if your nose was like theirs?

Maybe it could help you with everything everywheres!

Like carrying your school books or brushing your teeth.

Or shaking hands noses with someone you meet.

Next time you see one ask, “Why?” because they won’t be wrong.

When they tell you why their nose is so long!
