Hi Jay

Dankie vir jou besoek en goedige komentaar.

Those willow-like bushes are marsh reeds. If Iím looking at the correct side (hopefully) I doubt that one can see any indication of tusks yet as this guy (indicated by the roundness of the forehead) was only a couple of months old.

The shape of the skull is distinctly different between the male and female African elephant. The female skull forms a ridge extending over the top of the forehead resulting in a square-like appearance. Meanwhile, the male has a rounded forehead. This distinction between sexes can make field identification much easier.

Regards
Loot
