    Jerome, Thanks for the new ivory posts. I don't know where you find all the great ivory pics. When looking at these it makes me feel I was born 75 years to late.

    Very sad! It looks like they were sawn off...

    The plaque reads:
    tusks, world record from an Elephant killed by Jean Bormans in Bwito (Kivu) on December 11, 1943.
    the safe keep of this trophy was given to IRSAC by its' owner.

    What a shame! There's also some measurements written on the plaque but I can't make out what it says.

    Thanks for sharing 911!

    Here is what I could find...

    This great world record not too well known comes from the country of Bahunde, Cote Bwito. This is one of the largest and longest Elephant tusks in the world. This trophy is on exhibit at the entrance of the IRSAC Lwiro. The Monograph of the province of South Kivu, p. 66, says: "It was in Lwiro where was exhibited both ivory tusks which were the longest and heaviest to date. They came from an Elephant killed in 1943 in Bwito, in the current Virunga National Park (NB actually in the valley of the Upper Mweso, right bank) by a certain Jean Bormans (NB who lived near the main lake Mukoto of Kishali, Masisi). These tusks, unique in the world, measured successively 3.505 meters (11.499 feet) and 3.304 meters (10.839 feet), they weighed 68 kg (149.914 pound) and 61.5 kg (135.584 pound), they were stolen one after the other, in 1990 and 1991."

    Right!

    Then, the longest tusk of this pair was stolen is WR in lenght, because the Bronx Park in NY pair measuring max 3.48 m.

    Cheer.

    911, Thanks for sharing. They must have been beautiful tusks. Sad that they aren't viewable to the public anymore.

    The bull in front had about 48" sticking out and this was the first group we saw. The bull in the back closest to the camera was about 20" at the lip according to the ph and was a shooter by everyones standards that he knew of including himself. However this beast was a one tusker and I wanted 2. So I passed them both up.

    A PH friend of mine sent me a picture of a large bull he took last week
    in the Deka Tail Safari area of Zimbabwe.

    It weighed in at 101 and 82 pounds.
    You don't get these guys every day.
