Comments / pictures

Most of the zoo's animals come from exchange programmes with other countries, while a few of them were seized from nature during the 1950s and 60s, when China had no laws for animal protection. The 38-year-old elephant, "Banna", was caught in Xishuangbanna in Yunnan Province.
Looking to Die in Dignity, 2002-06-13

A 54-year-old Asian elephant Banna who has been living in the Shanghai Zoo for 46 years passed away quietly on Sunday, stirring mourning by animal lovers who had shared good times with this old friend.

As a senior inhabitant of the zoo, the wild female elephant first moved to Shanghai at the beginning of the 1970s and gave birth to eight baby elephants, the highest number of offspring bred by Asian elephant in Chinese zoos
