Comments / pictures

Tony Gentry received Burma in 1953. He would eventually present three elephants. Burma and Gypsy were sold in 1961 to Bob Snowden of Acme Circus Corporation, later heading to Clyde Beatty - Cole Brothers Circus. Rex Williams immediately changed their names to Bee and Gyp. The two elephants would remain together upon their sale to Africam Safari in Mexico in 1973. Bee would later be sold to the Toluca Zoo.

In October 2010, Africam Safari celebrated Yeap's 72nd birthday.
