The Magnificent Seven: giant tuskers!

The largest, longest, heaviest tusks ever recorded are the Kilimanjaro Tusks, pictured above. At over 10 feet in length, the tusks weigh 237 and 225 lbs respectively. 

That's amazing, because...

there has never been a tusk since then that weighed more than 190 lbs!

But the Kruger National Park* in Africa has kept track of the Magnificent Seven; modern giant tuskers!

Here are the names and tusk sizes of these huge animals:
