Imperative of prendre

Is not prendre in the imperative in "Tiens, prends leur numéro de téléphone" in which case shouldn't the 's' be dropped in prends ?

Maarten K.C1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

Frank, ‘prends’ is correct as dropping the terminal ‘s’ in the imperative form only applies to ‘-er’ verbs, not to the ‘-re’ or ‘-ir’ verbs. 

 Conjugate regular verbs in the imperative mood in French (L'Impératif)
