In September 2008, Tess and her son Tucker were loaned from Gary Johnson's Have Trunk Will Travel to the Houston Zoo. Tess was slated to return after a breeding loan arrangement. The transfer occured less than a year after the death of two year old Mac from the Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes virus.
