  1. Hi Dr.Hariri. I have a few question. What is the meaning of this phrase:
    ( larger than life presence)
    and this sentence: (Flap like projections on the end of a trunk are precise enough to pick up individual berries or leaves. )

    • Hi Armaghan. Thank you for using this comment to ask us your questions.
      About your first question, exceptional intelligence refers to people or humans, and larger than life presence refers to huge size of elephants, and the possibility of living together peacefully. Larger than life presence means mammoth quality.
      And about your second question, it refers to the loose and thin layer of muscle that sticks out of an elephant’s trunk designed specifically for picking up tiny things like berries and leaves on the ground.
      Berries like: strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, etc.
      Projection: end part of something that sticks out or protrudes.
      Flap like = the thin muscle at the end of the trunk, which is so flexible.
