The calf was sired by Taronga's bull, Gung, in Sydney 22 months ago before Thong Dee moved to Dubbo with three other elephants.

2016-11-26: Belle, a self-proclaimed animal enthusiast, said she saw how much happiness the bub brought Dubbo and that was her inspiration. It’s only fitting she suggested ‘Sabai’ which means happy in Thai language. Her pitch was the overwhelming favourite.
