2012-07-31: contradictory records from EEP and EEG
According to EEG newsletter nr 19 she died February 2nd 2011 at Circus Durov,
which indicates that they are 2 different elephants.
Marta's father is also her grandfather, she was the fourth calf her father sired with his daughter Pregolia.
Moscow Zoo got ownership of Marta at 23 April 2000, according to EEP studbook 2005.
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.
