Comments / pictures

"Taj is a female Asian elephant. She was born in 1940 and weighs 9,000 lbs. Taj was one of the lead elephants in Circus Vargas before coming to Discovery Kingdom in 1978. She is one of the oldest elephants in North America. Taj is one of the many park animals that paint and she loves showing off her artistic talent. Known as a good-natured old lady, she is a trainer favorite." SFDK Elephant Encounter Information Display

Taj was named Trixie while with Circus Vargas. Her name was changed to Tadji at Marine World, and later to Taj around 1985.

At her death in 2011, she was regarded the oldest elephant in a North American facility.
