Baby Elephant vs. Croc

A wily crocodile decided to try to make a snack out of a baby elephant, grabbing the youngster by the trunk when it came for a drink. The adult elephants soon came to the rescue, chased the croc away, and the baby will hopefully be no worse for the wear. That must hurt, though. I believe that the tip of the trunk is supposed to be pretty sensitive, allowing elephants to use it like a hand, feeling things and picking things up. Poor baby!
