The trunk contains as many as 60,000 muscles, which consist of longitudinal and radiating sets.

The longitudinals are mostly superficial and subdivided into anterior, lateral, and posterior.

The distinctive trunk is an elongation of the nose and upper lip combined; the nostrils are at its tip, which has a one finger-like process.

Unlike African elephants which rarely use their forefeet for anything other than digging or scraping soil, Asian elephants are more agile at using their feet in conjunction with the trunk for manipulating objects.

They can sometimes be known for their violent behaviour. This was from an elephant killed by Sir Brooke and measured 8 ft (2.4 m) in length, and nearly 17 in (43 cm) in circumference, and weighed 90 lb (41 kg).

Some males may also lack tusks; these individuals are called "filsy makhnas", and are especially common among the Sri Lankan elephant population.

Furthermore, the forehead has two hemispherical bulges, unlike the flat front of the African elephant.
