Crystal During the deserted morning hours, it comes ashore where it deftly uses its trunk to take a shower.
Ruby For its nest, PHANPY digs a vertical pit in the ground at the edge of a river. It marks the area around its nest with its trunk to let the others know that the area has been claimed.

LeafGreen It swings its long snout around playfully, but because it is so strong, this can be dangerous.
