† Toni is a dead Female ♀ Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), , who died 2006-01-25 at Smithsonian National Zoological Park, in United States, . Official death reason described as arthritis.
Toni was born 1965.
After the death of Princess in July 1971, Scranton held their final campaign to replace an elephant for the Nay Aug Park Zoo in Pennsylvania. Toni was purchased from the Children's Zoo in Des Moines, Iowa, where she had previously resided for several years.
Toni was tranferred to the National Zoo in October 1989 after the closing of the Nay Aug Park Zoo in Pennsylvania. Nay Aug Park Zoo officials originally planned to transfer Toni to Canada, but city residents persuaded to keep her in America. She, just as the other three elephants of the zoo in Scranton, had previously been kept as a single elephant in a concrete enclosure with a concrete yard. She had sustained a injury to her left front leg in 1975, a problem that eventually lead to her death in January 2006. She had previously been successfully treated for acute kidney disease in 2001.
