Okay, not really. But both animals are named after elephants! The first is commonly known as the elephant trunk snake (as well as: the wart snake, the Java wart snake, file snake and even doge faced snake). The second is commonly known as the elephant shrew; even though its not an elephant or a shrew. Its a sengis!
Just me, zookeeper Deidre, as I teach you about the weird aquatic world of the fat, and wrinkly Elephant Trunk Snake and the unusual monogamy of the elephant shrew (I mean sengis). Also, feel free to laugh at all of the scientific words I horribly mispronounce (I know I suck at it, but at least you're laughing with me!...you are laugh with me right?).
Scientific Names
