Zoology / wound of an elephant

Amputation was used to treat a chronic ulcerating and granulating wound of the tail stump of a female elephant (the distal 60 cm having been bitten off by another elephant). The amputation was carried out about 7.5 cm proximal to the lesion.

Spanish translation:muñón de la cola
Explanation:
stump = muñón

El corte de colas tiende a reducir la incidencia de colas mordidas en condiciones experimentales controladas, pero no elimina el comportamiento anormal. Se piensa que la regeneración de los nervios en el muñón de la cola después de la amputación genera hipersensibilidad
