Anybody seen this monster before? I just had to post it. Unreal.
HOLY MACKEREL :shocked:
TOM, what's the story behind it?
He is a GIANT, the holy grail of warthogs.
He was born as the uncommon offspring of a 100lb tusked bull elephant and a thick tusked warthog female. He grew up on the tough streets of Joberg. After primary school it became apparent that he was "gifted" anatomically and several of the local sows were fighting for his attention. This attention grew so that he was eventually recruited to the hills outside of Los Angeles where he became a star of "adult swine films" After successfully releasing such hits as "pork slamming" and "just rootin' around" he had a very close call with swine venereal disease. He decided to hang up his "acting" skills and move home.
Soon after his arrival home, he became the proud father of a litter of piglets, each as endowed as their father. For the next several years he fathered numerous offspring and lived the easy life.
After a long and adventuresome life, he died trying to sneak under a fence into a neighboring grain farm. His massive tusks, the items that made him a star, got caught up in the fencing and he passed away with no fanfare. Long live "Hard Tusk Harry" and may his memory live on for generations.
OK, I have no idea where he came from....i just got sent this by a PH friend of mine. If anyone really knows I would love to hear it.
+1, great story Tom!
you forgot my favorite two films. Slam the Ham and Bop the Bologna. His Screen name was John Swines. He was really one big pig!
Read where this was a pick up in Tanzania..
It was found while on a viewing/photo safari
whoa momma thats one bigass pig
like the story tom :thumb:
What a Hog's tale!
you funny man Tom
Happy Valentines Day, lol
Great story tom...lol
Great tale Tom! Oh wait!! Could it be... Warthog Ale? :thinking:
Looks like the mother of this warthog has had a thing going with an elephant.
he would have needed a cave not a hole in the ground to reverse into!!
:laughing::laughing::rofl: hey Tom google game animals of the past and present. Bob
I think this is one of the younger son's. It appears he's got the blues.
Great story, Tom, but, would you know where his offspring live :uptosome:
The two boys are in Hollywood trying to make a go at being child actors like their father!!
The girls are working the streets on the other side of the business. Their work are living arrangements
really are underground
If a case were not so darn heavy I would bring some over for you to taste.
Ha! . . great post!
BUT . . . back to the AMAZING photo . . . YES, anyone knowing the details please inform us.
Just trying to Sherlock Holmes the photo . . and probably quite wrong . . . as the tusks seem a bit sun-bleached/weathered of original color, I'm guessing it was a pick-up? Also looks like they may not match the skull as the stained lip-line on the tusks usually fits up much closer to the edge of the bone socket if the tusks are fully inserted. Then again these tusks are so long they may not want to stay fully inserted the relatively short sockets! :think:
Must have been a VERY old pig by judging how far out they carry almost constant circumference, no taper until the last few inches . . . no doubt another reason for Harry's popularity with the sows :wink:
It would be very interesting to know where this monster pig was collected and the measurements
