When visiting the Zoo, one of the most popular animals, and certainly one of the most recognizable, is the elephant. I always know when I’m close since I can see and hear them, and sometimes even smell them.
If you’re like me, you’ve always wondered which elephant is which. A friend that graduated from the Zoo Academy always challenged me to correctly name each elephant. Since I was always wrong, she gave me a few clues to help me tell the difference.
Female elephants live together in a social herd and you will find our three ladies together in the large yard off the main Zoo path. They are Jati, Schottzie and Mai Thai.
