Identified Tuskers of Kruger National Park

Fri Mar 21, 2014 11:14 pm

Introduction:
I think this is a great initiative to have all the still living tuskers together as a service to and for all. This service can be "just have a look at them en enjoy these magnificent giants" but also as a first help to try to ID tuskers you have seen during your trip.
Anyway: If you have seen a tusker but not sure about his of her ID please ask for help, if you want to post but don't know how, same thing, ask for help here. There is also a reward "competition", look at the thread.
I built a tuskersite called Tuskersofafrica to keep track on the tuskers, their development and giving space for new tuskers and building up a unlimited history for every Tusker.
http://www.tuskersofafrica.com

Not all the bulls at my site are big tuskers, some of them I am convinced will develop to Tusker in the near future, a few others with a collar (by STE Save the Elephants) are interesting to follow and in good relationship with STE I exchange info with them.

To keep all this updated please post your Tusker pictures including date and location here. (Mods will move new entries to the right place after a while!) This is really a we help you and you help us initiative.
It's great that A W gives all of us this possibility so let's make use of it in a good and proper way. (funny but A W are my intials too)

Regards
Aat
