Cloning in progress


Two Sri Lankan Tuskers (Elephant) walking alongside of each other.

One of the rarest moments to witness two magnificent tuskers together in the wild. These two well build tuskers have almost similar features and like there company while in the heard as well.

Sri Lankan tuskers are facing great danger from porches as they killed in search of ivory. Only 7% of male elephants in Sri Lanka grow tusks, and at present only 2% of the total elephant population are tuskers.
