This animal was donated for the Bells Brothers Circus from Mexico to the Rex Circus in Guatemala in 1968. Mister Romeo Lopez take care of the animal for 39 years working in several Circus and shows. He decided to let the care of the animal in the hands of the La Aurora National Zoological Park in March of 2008.Claudia Lorena Quan Rodas

Romeo Lopez -- better known in the circus world as "Tarzan Lopez" -- said that the elephant and he had been together since they were both 7 years old.

"We grew up together and have a special connection," he said.

Since their early years, the pair have grown up, cried and laughed together, and there's an unspoken bond between them, according to Lopez. When the circus was forced to shut down, they offered him $300,000 for Trompita, "but I would have felt like Judas. I couldn't sell her."
