Comments / pictures

One thing that was unusual about Freda is that she stopped having
calves when she was in her late 30s. Some females breed right up until
they’re 60. Freda’s last calf was born in June 1985. Fagin, as he was called,
had her full attention until he became independent when he was 15.

2009: The year 2009 proved to be devastating for all the Amboseli elephants. It was the worst drought in living memory. Even tough old Freda
succumbed.
