The Cleveland Zoo acquired their three female African elephants in June 1997. Martika was kept as a single elephant for six years until her transfer, thereby closing the elephant exhibit at the Erie Zoo. Jo and Moshi resided together at the Wildlife Safari for thirteen years. Moshi first arrived following her importation with another cow, Nanda, in May 1979 and Jo from a circus in July 1984. Nanda was sold to the Swain family in April 1989.
