  1. I am trying to get inside this problem, but I’m a bit at sea still, perhaps Anne or Moll might have the answer.

  2. Could this hard outer casing be named in association with a distinguishing feature of certain members of the proboscids?

  3. To this non-biologist it looks like a cross between a loofah and some kind of organic clarinet. In fact at first I thought you’d raided the music collection
    and is there a reason why this is posted in homeopathy? 😉
