Comments / pictures

Moyo and Thandi were imported together from Zimbabwe to Ferndale. They were sold to the Point Defiance Zoo in January 1983. After 14 years together, they were transferred in June 1997 to Disney's Animal Kingdom as potential breeding candidates.
Ibala and Rafiki were imported together from Zimbabwe to Grand Prarie. Several months later they were sold to the Phoenix Zoo in June 1982. After 15 years together, they were transferred in October 1997 to Disney's Animal Kingdom as potential breeding candidates, several months following the additions of Moyo and Thandi. Ibala died in May 2005 after an unsuccessful birth to her first calf.
Of the four additions in a several month period, only one of these animals has birthed successfully at the Animal Kingdom. Moyo has given birth to the first and fourth calves, both males. Tufani was born in May 2003 and Tsavo in June 2008, both sired by Jackson during his breeding loan from the Pittsburgh Zoo.
