Okie,
Hi my friend hope you are doing well , give the lady in the house a hug from me and elly.

The tusker is collared by the STE organization and named Nkombo (Salamanda :thumbs_up: )
(you will find some collared ones in the STE section at my tusker site...just scroll a bit at the main page)
You know you're welcome to send the pics.
Great to see now that over some years his tusks are growing well...

@ ALL - Just updated the tusker site again with pics of Ngonyama (no entries for abour two years , but he is doing well , lives near Letaba, hut 152.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Also remarkable... received picture made in the early 80-ties of Phelwane (died in 1988) , very nice to update his page too.

I am not always able to reply immediately but still doing the best I can (a "bit" busy with work and not always home...)

Many more updates done over the last few months and at your service to do updates for you. Know that increasing number of people do send pictures directly to me ...they cannot or do not post them here

Saw this big guy at Thihongonyeni waterhole near Mopani on New Year's day 2012. There always seems to be some big bulls hanging out around there. Was hoping Aat or one of the other tusker-lovers could help me out with a name. I looked at Aat's website but I'd rather try and identify some little brown birds :lol: I find that much easier.

Johann,
Was just looking at the one you captured. Good news , it is a named tusker called Makhadzi.
He lives in the area roughly from Mopani down to Letaba
Please send me the picture so I can update his page, please add name, location and date of sighting so I have all info together... mail to:
tuskers@zeelandnet.nl
You know this cost you one kudu horn , price per ID :lol: :lol: :lol:

Evening, this elephant was seen on the 8th of April this year near Mopani. Is he a tusker, and if so- what is his name?

Ranred,
Interesting sighting. The tusker you have seen is a named one, his name is MCULU. Last update at my tuskersite is dated december 2011 so I like to ask you to send the picture(s) to me to update his page.
tuskers@zeelandnet.nl

So far he has been seen in the Letaba area so his area is Letaba up to Mopani now.

Hi Aat,

I got two pics of tuskers if its possible to identify. The first one was taken near Tshokwane in March 2012.

Image

My other pic is not that great, but the tusk do look quite big and I would like if it is an emerging tusker. It was taken in March along the S28 close to Croc Bridge

Hi,
Great sightings :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

The one almost hidden in the bush is to my opinion Fayi but not 100%

The other one near Tshokwane is Zambhala

mmmm another kudu and two beers earned :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Sending pics to me is not required....just a wish

Great! I thought it might be him but wasn't sure. Will mail the pic with 1 or 2 more. Sure you can have a horn and a beer. I must just figure out how to get it through the letterbox :lol: Heel erg bedankt voor al je werk Aat.

Let's drink a tusker beer (kenya) even a virtual one will do.

To All..........
Updated my tusker site last week with several pictures of MAC (great to see him alive and well, might be one of the biggest tuskers at the moment..long and thick) , Nshawani and Nwambu and collared STE tusker Nkombo.

Pics were not posted here but sent directly to me.
