In Feburary 1974, the first 17 elephants arrived at Circus World from Venice - Anna May, Peggy, Rose, Manja, Rebecca, Gilda, Carmen, Mudu, Zina, Tagu, Minyak, Mala, Sophie, Barbara, Babe, Josky and Hope.

In November 2002, Kathy Sh-Boom was the oldest known captive elephant to have died from the Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpes virus, 30 months after Babe's arrival at the age of 40. After Kathy's death, Ringling donated another elephant to Niabi Zoo in March 2003, Sophie. Niabi Director Tom Stalf said it is assumed Kathy contracted the disease from Babe. Both Sophie and Babe were both later tested positive as carriers for the disease. They were selected for the RBBB's companionship program after a recommendation not to breed, due to Babe's ovarian cysts and Sophie's Arthritis.
