Tusker in Tiger reserve

This was a mock charge to tell us to get lost. If it was a real charge I and others with me probably would be dead meat. He was in Musth, secretion from a gland during the mating season. That is when they are extremely cranky and dangerous. The right tusk is a bit broken probably from a fight.




The oozing Musth gland can be seen as a small black patch between the ear flap and eye. I made the subject fill the frame to get better detail of skin texture.

Thanks. They were open 10 seater vehicles with a cover at the top to provide some shade. As in any other wildlife sanctuary we were not allowed to step out of the vehicle at any time.
Ah, so that explains why the tusker could have made mincemeat out of your group. ;)
