    Neat pics!
    Iin the last pic, if one was hunting this ele, the point of aim would be just above the eye level and just slightly to the right side (shooters view) of the forehead bump? :)
    Can anyone guess the weight? I can't but would like to know.

    Left tusk is about 32 inches the right is 37 inches. I think 14.5 inches at the lip.

    Now, if I could only remember the darn formula.
    I'd say 58 and 62 lbs. respectively.


    Gorgeous old Elephant.

    Last pic reminds me of the vets that had sown up the elephant for the third time "I think we have all the instruments out this time", says one. "Yeah", says the other, "but where is Nurse Parker?!?":eek:hbrother:
