    I will try to add notations to a couple of these photos.

    1st photo is the largest known elephant out of Somalia. 146/141 lbs. 9'10"/9'9" in length per Rowland Ward. Shot in 1965 by Silla Cigade. 32nd largest pair.

    2nd photo. I am not positive but I think the elephant is "Ahmed of Marsabit" in Northern Kenya. The last few years of his life he had full time guards. He is now on display in Nairobi.

    Foxi,

    Thank you for the post about the Taxidermy. I never knew who did the work on Ahmed. As a coincidence, our family used Zimmerman's on a couple of animals as well.

    As I recall, there was an elephant possibly 30 years older than Ahmed, named Mohamed of Marsabit. They looked to have very similar ivory. The general consensus was that Ahmed was Mohamed's son. I have seen photos but can't find anything about him now and need to run.

    Another photo of Ahmed. Truly a beautiful animal!

    Great story Foxi. I knew Ahmed was displayed in Nairobi, but didn't know the rest.

    To see him in the wild.....
