Perhaps the most famous elephant in the world, Ahmed was known for his large tusks and put under 24 hour protection in Marsabit National Park by Kenya's first president, Kenyatta. Ahmed's skeleton with the original tusks can be found in The Great Hall of Mammals inside the museum and a life-size model can be found in the courtyard of the main gallery building.
