Records about Kuka from Peter Stolk, Netherlands
When I asked my contact about Kuka he wrote this: Jonas' website makes no mention of Rajah and I'm sure this must be the same animal (despite the difference in dates). So perhaps you can give Kuka, http://www.elephant.se/database2.php?elephant_id=750, a second name.
