Tusker in training.

This large old bull was having thorn tree branches as a meal. See the branches with thorns sticking out from his mouth. See note

The tree or rather a shrub, in line with his front legs, is a Flacky Thorn (Acacia exuvialis) and they have formidable thorns.

Look at it in large to see the thorns!!
