Did anybody see the two elephants that came down to have a drink on Saturday Eve @ about 22:30? The one bull's right tusk tip apeared to be barely hanging on!! Pretty hectic!!
Elephant with "broken" tusk!???
hi there..this is our old friend Skewy..already named a few years ago for his skewed right tusk. He is one big old amazing Bull.
See my posted replies to those who inquired earlier on Saturday evening, SA time.
scroll way down Forum index page..(opening page )
to the "Wildlife and birding forum"..
click on first topic.."African Wildlife/nature quest"
see Sabine's inquirey re: double tusker subject line, it's the first one below the stickies.
my posts are there. http://new.africam.com/boma/viewforum.php?f=14
I found the cam Pics of the aforementioned elephant.
Elaine posted two Cam Pics @12:12PM Thurs March 15, 2007, the second pic shows the crooked left hind leg.
Edit; Emjay posted just ahead of Elaine with a good shot of the corkscrewed right tusk, both post are on pg 2 of that day.
Thanks for that bro, I agree, itdoes look misformed hey! I think we should name him Corky for future reference! Ha ha!
Larry mentioned its a misformes tusk, which makes it a first for me! That is very interesting!!
I saw that pair. The first one has been previously reported and photographed. He has a badly deformed right tusk (corkscrew shaped and turned in toward his body). Isn't he the one with the previously broken (misshaped) left rear leg ?
If I can find the photos, I'll edit where they to find them.
Yes, I saw it. Would be interesting to know what happened to it. We got a real good view since they passed right in front of the waterhole.
