Comments / pictures

In March 1986, Scott and Heidi Riddle purchased 1.4 African elephants from Arthur Jones - Solomon, Felix, Msichana, Mokala and Mugsy. Msichana and Mokala were given to the Lee Richardson Zoo five months later after the death of Twinkles at the Kansas institution. Felix was transferred to another location the following year until her return in 1996 and sold again (pregnant) in 2007 to the Maryland Zoo with Tuffy. Mugsy and Solomon remained at the Arkansas farm until their deaths in 1996 and 2008, respectively.

In Decemeber 2006, the Lee Richardson Zoo sent both of their 24 year old female African elephants to the Jacksonville Zoo as breeding candidates for the Species Suvival Plan. They joined 23 year old female Sheena and 15 year old male Ali. In return, Missy and Kimba (36 and 24 years old respectively) were transferred from Florida to Kansas.
