Hi Rose

Would it be a known tusker or emerging tusker?

Hi Rose

Unfortunately not, he just kept on walking slowly in that direction while eating grass and ignoring us.

Hi JBPhoto69,

What a lovely sighting.

You PM someone by clicking on the "contact" envelope in their profile

Unfortunately new members can not send PM's shortly after they joined.

I'll ask RosemaryH to arrange alternative contact for you to send the sighting details.

Good Evening, I located a Tusker a few weeks ago in the Park and would like to Confirm ID, I have a suspicion that it may be Kukura but I am not 100% conviced. I see that forum members can not DM straight away and I would like to send via email.

Thanks,

Josh

Why don't you post your pic/pix here, which is what most members do. That's the whole point of forums :wink: . Rosemary will see you pic/x and forward them to the appropriate SANPArks ellie experts and then post their reply here as well. That on-forum interchange benefits all forum members.

Hi Josh

Welcome to the forums.

Sounds like a great sighting. Yes, please do post your sighting here, as arks has suggested and I will PM you with an email address you can use to send the details of your sighting to so I may assist with the ID.

Thanks. I look forward to seeing the elephant you saw. :cam:
