However, by early morning it proved possible to tether most of the truants to trees, though a female which we called Ceylon was not located till the following afternoon. She was deep in the woods out at Pinneberg, and had to be led home by our Stellingen working elephant Roma.

'Goliath', a fully grown sea-elephant, appeared in the park as the first of his kind. His travelling quarters were the size of the largest pantechnicon made. He weighed no less than 5,300 Ib. avoirdupois I He could have outbalanced two school forms together with their masters ! To get Goliath into the park we
used our working elephant, Roma, but before Roma pushed the enormous van she took a peep inside, and virtually squeaked with delight at the comical vast tubby thing she saw inside, with funny flippers for arms and a clownish face.

'Push, Roma!' we cried. Roma pulled herself together, and the enormous packing case slid up the ramp on to the edge of the Antarctic Panorama pool.
