Gemunu is an adult elephant in his twenties. Lal Anthonisz who is responsible for naming many of Yala’s tuskers say he gave the name ‘Gemunu’ on a suggestion by Sajith Premadasa himself a wildlife enthusiast.

2018-02-28: The Yala National Park today confirmed that the majestic tusker known as Gemunu in the sanctuary had lost one of its tusks following an attack by two other single tuskers a few days ago.
