Comments / pictures

In late August 2009, the Berlin Zoo sold three of their four year old, captive born Asian elephants. The two males and female, Yoma, Horis and Cinta, were all sired by Ankhor to different cows. They were transported by truck to open the new elephant exhibit at the Rostow Zoo in November.
