Just for the ones who like to ID the tuskers in KNP during their trip(s)

I just updated both PDF tusker documents (part I version 3 and Part II version 4). Added all the new ones, updated the detailed pictures and descriptions/characteristics.

Both documents are available for download by today (december 20th) from my website Tuskers of Africa (top right corner)

Search them..... find them....photograph them.... and let me know :) :) :)

Merry Christmas and a happy 2011 :thumbs_up:

Thanks, Aat. I'll be there in 4 weeks so hope to see some of them.
You've certainly made identification a heck of a lot easier for me.

Hello Aat

Thank you for sharing this incredible and useful information.

Question: over the last year or two, I have seen a few "big tusk" elephants in the KNP. If we see a potential Big Tusker, and cannot identify him through available info supplied by you, where can we take/ send the photos for confirmation?

Thank you

Fizzpop,
You are welcome to send pictures of the (big) tuskers you have to me. Even if you could ID him yourselves please send. This way I can update my site with recent or even older pictures to get a complete as possible "picture" of him. For what you think are potential ones same "procedure", I keep pics in database to see devellopment and in time I add promising tuskers to the site.
address: tuskers@zeelandnet.nl
Please always add your name (reference to your name here) date and location of the sighting, that makes it easier for me to store the info and pics.
