Need help with identification

Unread post by HansTillema »

Hi there, I returned from a trip to Northern KNP today. Whilst at Shingwedzi we met a guy from Komati, who has a huge passion for tuskers. To date, I was most intereated in Leopards and Lions, but this guy awoke something in.me.

As luck would have it we saw the bull in attached pictures. I spent some time trying to id him and also sent Letaba musuem the attached. Krisry will only be back in Jan 2018 but I am very interested to find out who this big boy is. Can the forum perhaps help in the mean time?

I'm glad you have realised "Tuskering" - it's very exciting and addictive.

I saw this impressive guy in October 2017 in the north.
Could this be Xindzulundzulu as well?
I sent a PM with data and location to RosemaryH.
