We were pretty close to a tiger kill and were returning after waiting to catch a glimpse of the tiger (which we did not) when we came across this young tusker. Not bothered by the stench of the kill it was moving about in the area. We stopped for a few seconds and continued moving ahead. The tusks were quite impressive considering the size of the elephant and would grow well over a period of time. It was surprising that one half of the elephant was wet considering the fact that there was no water hole nearby.
