Contradictory records:

Some records state Kanto was born in 1978

while records from asianelephant.net stat he was born in 1981, and arriving in 1985, similar to the female Kima.

If this is the case, he cannot be the father to Samdura, born 1986?

2018-06-05: According to zoo officials Monday, the Asian elephant named Kanto died about 4 p.m. on Saturday. They said Kanto developed an abscess on the sole of the right foot in April 2015. It is a common disorder for elephants.
