Trunk-Twining

Mutual entwining of trunks may occur during both low and high intensity greetings. (66) As seen between greeting and sparring males the entwining of trunks is slow and sensual; whereas between female relatives during a bonding or greeting ceremony the action is more sudden and dramatic, like a sudden clasping of another during a human greeting. This higher intensity version is known as Trunk-Grasping.
