Most believe that the casque aids in hydration. It can help channel the water towards the mouth so it is easier to drink. Most likely it helps males attract females and also show dominance over other males.

I should clarify...

I don't think that it is used to aid in drinking. That is just what many say. I think that is just coincidence. (y)

So the muscles in the casque are actually part of the jaw function. Now I know why Zaphod drew blood when he accidentally mistaked my finger for a hornworm... He did have a big head! :LOL:
