    Indian tusker at its best. It is in its prime. Famous Naturalist M. Krishnan used to call these tusks as
    "Murderous tusks".
    The tusks- barrel type, horizontal, sharp and pointed are deady in any combat and other tuskers will normally not like to engage.
    Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild


    P. S.: Bijrani zone is becoming famous next to Dhikala. I heard that the most beautiful tigress there has not been seen for quite sometime.

    The elephants are often instigated by jeep drivers. So they can chase vehicles at times. However, in many cases they simply give way to us. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
