salamanda,
PDF's haven't been changed. I hope I will find some time for it soon. My daily work and traveltime do consume much time , my lovely wife Elly has a small backlog with things to do in and around the house, so no much time is left for writing stories and IDíng tuskers etc....

We found this guy on 15.02.12 on the S29 - Maybe not one with the longest tusks but at least for me his tusks do look promising :thumbs_up:

A truly magnificent animal Pumbaa! :thumbs_up:
In the first photo the elephant actually reminds me of a picture of Dzombo, one of the original Magnificent 7
Nice pics! :clap:

Pumbaa,
Sorry for a bit late reply...but time time... :redface: :redface:

I received the pictures and to my opinion this is Zambhala. Can see the notch / little piece of loose skin at his right ear.

Thanks for sending !

fee,
I can't ID him by this picture , don't know if you have more pictures like frontal ones ?
I don;t like guessing who it might have been.

Hi Aat, we saw this tusker at Mooiplaas waterhole on three different occasions whilst up at Mopani. I think it is Ngotso?
