Comments / pictures

Lady, Megan and Mona were all donated to the Kansas City Zoo in July 1994 from Kings Island. Mona died the day of arrival.

In November 1999, Lady became pregant after breeding by Casey. She carried the calf to term but was unable to give birth. After unsuccessful injections of oxytocin, trans-rectal and trans-abdominal ultrasounds were repeated in June/July 2005 to reassess the calf. In December 2006 a vesibulotomy was performed to remove the mummified fetus after the onset of labor. She is ranked as the dominant female of the Herd. Her distinguishing features include her right tusk and the scar on her left hip. She is estimated at 8500 pounds. //Kansas City Zoo, Elephant Medical Records.
