Horizontal-Sniff

Reaching out with a full extension of trunk to inspect an object or scent that the elephant apparently does not wish to approach. The elephant typically stretches its body in the direction of interest and then elongates its trunk to its fullest extension several times. The maneuver appears to take some effort on the part of the elephant, as it appears not to be able to maintain this full extension for more than a fraction of a second. (150)
