On a related note, I was once (mis)informed that only male elephants have tusks.
I would tsk-tsk over photos labeled "mother and child elephant" that showed a
tusked adult. But the joke was on me.
It turns out that within African elephants, males and females have tusks; within
Asiatic elephants, only males have tusks. (Or, to make this more related to the
original post, you can say that "in a herd of African elephants, both the bulls
and the cows will have tusks.")
