That is certainly a very different sleeping position for an elephant :hmz:

Elsa - Unable to match him up with any bulls on file at this stage. Do you perhaps have a photo of his left side? A file is being opened for him for now :thumbs_up: Thanks for your submission.

Have you seen an elephant bull with an impressive single tusk while in Kruger?

It would be great to see your photos here if you have seen one. An impressive tusk should measure about 1.5m or more from the lip line. Let's see what you have?

Please PM me with the location and date of your sighting. Thanks.

Hi Shushin

Nice shots.

Unfortunately not one of the named bulls in the project but a great sighting.
