Fourth Tanya of Jenda Smaha

"Smaha moved his show and family in 1980 to Botswana, South Africa, where Tanya performed at a hotel casino. He fell in love with Africa and dedicated himself to the protection of vanishing Species. He became a good friend of Dr. Helena Fitchat, director of the Center for Rehabilitation of Wildlife in South Africa.
He and his wife retired to Sarasota in 1989 to reunite with many of the friends they had made in show business who also retired there. Tanya was given to a friend who had a circus in Mexico." see http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/LK/20061111/News/605242899/SH/ (By MARK ZALOUDEK Posted Nov 11, 2006)

The fourth went to Circo Tihani in Mexico in 1986
