Pang is a prefix name, used in Thailand for female elephants.

Vets in Thailand are baffled by the sudden death of a rare twin elephant at a zoo near the capital, Bangkok.

The elephant, Joom, was one of a pair of twins - an unusual phenomenon among elephants.

She fell ill on Friday, began to vomit and attacked her keeper before dying a few hours later.
