The Cleveland Zoo acquired their three female African elephants in June 1997. Martika was kept as a single elephant for six years until her transfer, thereby closing the elephant exhibit at the Erie Zoo. Jo and Moshi resided together at the Wildlife Safari for thirteen years. Moshi first arrived following her importation with another cow, Nanda, in May 1979 and Jo from a circus in July 1984. Nanda was sold to the Swain family in April 1989.
In September 2008, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo transferred their three animals to the Columbus Zoo during construction of the new African Elephant Crossing habitat. The anticipated three year loan began as Jo and Martika were transported via trailer in the morning, followed by Moshi that evening. They joined four Asian elephants already housed in Columbus, but the two herds were kept separate. The three Africans returned to Cleveland in December 2010.
In September 2008, 23 year old Moshi weighed 8,620 pounds.
