In 2007, the Yerevan Zoo hosted a "wedding ceremony" for the arrival of Candy from Moscow's Animal Theatre to the Armenian zoo's single male elephant. A new facility was built for the two elephants at this time as well. Attempts were made by the zoo for several years to bring a mate for the Grand, but deaths of the intended transfers and animal rights protests prevented any transactions.
