Episode 1 - The Elephant
Elephants feed on plants with very little nutritional value for up to 18 hours a day, so evolution has equipped them with vast intestines, as well as huge teeth and massive jaw muscles – attached to an equally gigantic skull. But this produces another problem: how to reach food on the ground.
The solution is the most versatile limb on the planet - the trunk. Capable of the most amazing range of motions - from picking up berries to ripping a tree from the ground, the trunk is a wonder of evolution. It's a Just So Story for the Darwinian age.
