Comments / pictures

Gajendra was in free contact until 2005/2006. The transfer to PC was not initited because of current conflict with elephant keepers, but based on the wish to work him in PC without previous conflict.

Jamuna was the first live calf born to Gajendra and Panang, following two previous stillbirths.

Gejendra was transferred to the Leipzig Zoo in January 2011 while rennovations were made on the elephant barn at the Munich Zoo.
