Nicknamed “Silver Monstra” as it was regularly spotted in the Silver Cloud Estate in Gudalur, and for its love of consuming Monstera deliciosa plants found in the region, the animal, believed to be around 30-years-old, had sustained an injury to the region around the base of its tail three years ago. The injury is believed to have probably been caused as a result of a fight with another elephant.
