Dominant Tusk

Dominant Tusk Photo

Recently WCS photographer Julie Larsen Maher sent in this inspiring photo from Kenya, along with a bit of trivia she’s learned in the field. Elephants are either left- or right-tusked - you can tell the dominant tusk by its size, curve, and wear. So many young elephants and adults with ivory in tact is an inspiring sight, but one that we must continue working to protect.
