    Very interesting. I wonder if this was due to injury or a genetic issue?

    i had to look twice as well.i think the second photo due to the angle is a bit of an optical illusion. :headscratch:

    I think you men are on target after a second review of the one tusk. with the spot on the end.

    It looks to be the same hunter in both pictures.

    The camera angle is what gives a different back ground for the 2 pictures.

    Trying to trick us, however you men are sharp...
