"I just learned that the elephant that was named after me died at Mallorco safaripark on 15-11-2008. I gave her my name when I was a little girl and she was just a baby who was new at Ouwhans dierenpark. A tv-program asked the children to name the baby. They choose my name. Now I'm nearly 51 years old and I hav 3 children. I would like to know if elephant Anka has had children too."
