A big thank you to Edward Davis of the University of Oregon and Bob Lee of the Oregon Zoo for chatting with us on the episode! And to Hova too!
And don’t forget to revist our previous Christmas Specials – Oregon’s First Christmas, A Child’s Christmas in (Exploding) Whales, and Christmas in Silver Lake! (hashtag uplifting!)
Below are some photos from the top secret basement that Professor Davis took us to to view Tusko’s bones!
Slim’s lines mostly come from his book, I Loved Rogues; The Life of an Elephant Tramp. A great book!
Bob Lee gave us a peek into the new Elephant Lands at the Oregon Zoo!
That’s Professor Edward Davis, of the University of Oregon. And behind him is one of the three shelving units that hold the skeleton of Tusko the elephant. I got a chance to check out those massive bones (the skull alone weighs 200 pounds!) and chat with the professor about Tusko- the subject of this year’s KAOH Christmas Special! Coming real soon! #podcast #elephant #ducks #uofo #Oregon #eugene #Christmas #skeleton
The secured, undisclosed location of Tusko’s skeleton (maybe a third of it) at the University of Oregon. The 200 pound skull is on the bottom shelf.
