The African version of 'Old Man And The Sea'. His expression tells a lot about thestrugglefor survival on the plan of the African continent. Miserableand probablyhis heroic days have gone.A really sensational capture. Awesome.

Thanks wk7leung -this chap isprobably in the prime of his life, the scars on his face from territorial clashes. He was a HUGE fellow, probably close to 250kg !



I'll post another shot of an old guy, he fitted your very apt description of the old man and the sea.
