Sang Raja in Pont-Scorff ZooStill young, being bottle fed by keeper Saravanan Elangkovan in Singapore Zoo in 2001.

After the final sale of a five year old captive born male Sumatran elephant to Germany, Sang Raja was crate trained for weeks before his twenty hour flight to the Koln zoo in September 2004. In March 2005 the Singapore Zoo replaced him with two ten year old, captive born female Sumatran elephants Intan and Aprila. The zoo's total number of elephants was brought to five.
