This seems far less primitive than I would have imagined. Maybe nature has evolved this tusk beyond mere savage weaponry as in the simpler cases of the rhino, buck, or other species with shorter horns. A longer horn can be both a weapon and a roasting tool for holding things over fire at a comfortable distance.
