Comments / pictures

74, 65 or 40 years old??

Her real age is unknown, except for that she must have been born before 1973, and is referred to as "original matriarchs from the 1970s" AND NOT "original matriarchs from the 1960s" OR "original matriarchs from the 1950s"

Claimed by ATE


2014-09-08: Deborah was well into her 60s (we’ll know her age more exactly when we’ve seen her teeth). I first met her in 1973 and have followed her life for more than 40 years


2018-05-18: It's always a bit sad finding pictures of elephants who have died, but this is one of our favorite images of one of our grand old ladies. Taken three months before she died of old age at 74, we love this picture of Deborah
