"The Walt King elephant had a three act with Rajee until she died in Benton Harbor, Michigan in Sept. of 1963. They didn't get Queenie until 1967, and they only had Nellie for a short time in the early 1970's before selling here to the Commerford Petting Zoo. So other than Tulsa and Wanda, I don't have a third elephant listed in 1965." //Bob Cline
