Wild: These tusks are mine!

Challenge #7 in the Nature and Us series. Hosted by PentUp.
Challenge has finished
Since human-kind first walked this earth with wild animals we have hunted them for not only nutrition, but coveted, as both trophies and for utility, various body parts of wildlife. But all that we covet once came from a living creature. Let’s see images of live wild animals (in the wild in their natural habitat) prominently showing in the image a coveted feature of that creature, be it tusk, horn, claw, tooth, feather, mane, fur, fin, tail… etc. INCLUDE in the subject or notes section; the species of wildlife AND the general location in which the photograph was taken. NO CAPTIVE animals such as in zoos or artificial enclosures.
