There was a time when Elephant had no nose. He couldn’t swat away the flies, or scrub his belly… he couldn’t even blow his nose. Then one day snappy Crocodile snapped! Crocodile pulled and he pulled and he pulled… until Ker-doing!!! Crocodile let go and Elephant’s nose was all long and wiggly! And that’s why Elephant has a trunk.
