    Aren’t infant trunks non-prehensile at that age? Do they just fling it around until they can catch it in their mouth?

      So, I have no clue, and when I googled I found this - mind you, this is just from Quora:

      While a baby elephant’s trunk is not as strong or fully prehensile as an adult’s trunk, it still has some grasping ability from an early age. It can hold onto its mother’s tail or body to support itself and gain stability while it explores and learns to use its trunk.
