Amboseli TA family group

1976: in June Tuskless gave birth to her first calf, a female, and became leader of the T-family, after Torn Ear died.

1979: Sadly Tuskless’s ’76 calf died of unknown causes.

1980: The Ts had their own mini baby boom: Tuskless, Slit Ear, Tia and Tallulah had healthy calves.

1988: in November 1988 Tuskless and Tilly each had a male calf.

1989: The following year, in March, Tuskless's new calf died. We never found the carcass. This little male always seemed such a healthy, rambunctious calf and we were surprised that he died.

1993: Tuskless had a daughter.

1995: Tuskless’s daughter Tulip gave birth at the tender age of ten in January.

1997: in January 1997 Tuskless was shot dead by the Kenya Wildlife Service in retaliation for a Maasai cow that was killed by an elephant.

Tonie took over the leadership of the TA family after Tuskless’s death.
