Musth male showing continual dribbling of urine from a retracted and sheathed penis. The flow may vary from an intermittent drip to a gushing stream, particularly if the male is threatening another. Musth males may lose up to 300 litres per day and consequently they drink more than non-musth males. The continual dribbling gives inner hind legs black shiny appearance and may turn the sheath of the penis a greenish coloration. The urine has a very pungent odor. (96)
