Not too busy here , hope you liked the news about Ngunyupezi ?

Just added a new Tusker to the site. His name is SHISHA (named after little spruit near Babalala) where he has been photographed. I received pics of him end of 2010 and since no other entries till a few weeks ago. Time to add this one, with clear pics of all sides. Special with him, the left ear with a few larger notches and many very small one... ragged

Link to his page:

Thanks to both who sent the pictures to me.

ossendryver,
Not a named tusker.
My impression: not really a tusker or promising one. tusk does not look that long and thick.

@ All - About Mahlahini

I was busy with ID'ing some tusker pics sent to me.

Remarkable finding: I got some pics of a tusker made near Shingwedzi. Could not ID or find him in the database (north) but.... checking tuskers from other area's I could ID him as Mahlahini.
Mahlahini, so far only spotted in the Letaba area...so next to some other "travellers" Mahlahini's area is from Letaba to Shingwedzi... nice to see and learn...

:wall: :wall: :wall: And here I am neglecting Africam! What an elephant!

Aat, just popping in to check that you are still doing your usual hard work on these Big Tuskers. Still fantastic to come here so often and read about new and old tuskers. I'm fascinated with Ngunyupezi !! That straight-down tusk is sure to break soon.

Keep it up.

Noel

Please send picture(s) to me so I can give 100% ID.
mail to: tuskers@zeelandnet.nl

Pictures please in large format, so I can look at details and lighten-up the photo.
thanks ahead
