Fast Facts: The tusks of the elephant are greatly elongated incisors and about one-third of their total length lies hidden inside the skull.  The largest tusk ever recorded weighed 214 pounds and was 138 inches long.  Over the years hunters and poachers have taken the animals with the largest tusks and as a result tusks of this size are not found on elephants in Africa today. Because the tusk size is an inherited characteristic it is rare to find one now that would weigh more than 100 pounds.  The tusks grow for most of an elephant’s lifetime and are an indicator of age.
