This is a picture of a big elephant in the field. An adult elephant with big tusks. Elephant tusks first appear when elephants are around 2 years old. Tusks continue growing in their lives. Tusks are used as a defense when fighting and to help with feeding – prising bark off trees or digging up roots. I love to share many elephant images in HD quality. I recommend you download this picture in its original size to get the best quality. This big-size picture can be a good illustration for any purpose.
