The North American Regional Studbook lists this elephant with a Temporary Studbook Number, lacking "supporting documentation to validate their identity."

Tex, Padmuh, Tara, Yamina, Rani, Seeta and Rajee were the seven punks added in 1953 as "The Seven Wonders," and all included in the 1955 Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows. In December 1957 the show toured in Mexico City, where four of their elephants were sold to the local zoo - Judy, Seeta, Tara & Yamina.
