    This was a mock charge to tell us to get lost. If it was a real charge I and others with me probably would be dead meat. He was in Musth, secretion from a gland during the mating season. That is when they are extremely cranky and dangerous. The right tusk is a bit broken probably from a fight. The oozing Musth gland can be seen in #5 as a small black patch between the ear flap and eye.

    More great images. He looked like he meant business. A good idea to take the hint.
