26 November 2012Big Boys are Beautiful
For the ones knowing me a bit better it will be not a surprise this story is about Tuskers
Big and / or promising tuskers. Tuskers are : Fascinating , Special, Impressing and very very Interesting.
I am also writing this story to try to convince the visitors of Kruger and other (south) african areas and countries to pay extra attention to these gentle giants. Make photo’s and post them at the Tusker thread
After this introduction just one more reason to pay extra attention …. The number of Big Tuskers is less then most rare animals / species in Kruger…. So it is a great privilege to meet one.
Coming to the story… I like to present you 5 named tuskers I met during my last trip to Kruger (nov-dec 2012)
First one I like to show is RICEHO
I met him just south of Shingwedzi camp along the main road.
Very nice tusker with promising tusks, growing well and both tusks are thick
I could get close to him, he was very relaxed and friendly. A bit of “whispering” and he was posing as it should be.
First contact… coming towards you and looking at each other … are you relaxed ?
Getting closer and saying Hi…. Don’t laugh but I am always talking to them as a friend… in whisper mode telling him that he will be on the internet with new pictures… making him proud
It’s great to get close and just look at him… eating in a reaxed way.
