    Default Makna: Anything odd with that lump?

    Took this pic of a Makna when driving back from Nagarahole NP on 20 Apr 2011. Wonder if anything is odd with that lump behind its ear?

    It is good you could observe this. The lump does look quite odd. I checked in a few images, but then saw the same in other images too, so not quite sure if that is not normal. Experts please comment. Thanks for sharing.

    Unfortunately the elephants in bandipur have many such unnecessary tennis ball like lumps. The health of elephants directly depends upon the quality of water. Where ever you find good quality water, you will find the elephants in prime condition. Contaminated water is a big killer for elephants as well as give rise to many such things.

    guess it is tumor, as Praveen says. Remeber reading somewhere that excessive eating of lantanna leaves may cause this..but not sure how credible the info is!
