The Okinawa Zoo received two young Asian elephants from India in return for ten animals, including two blue sheep.

2007: (Yokohama is an error, should be Okinawa) Jaldapara jumbos off to Yokohama: Two elephants, Rahul and Devi, were ferried to Yokohama zoo from Calcutta on Wednesday by Air India’s ‘combo’ flight (passenger and cargo aircraft). The two elephants were brought to Calcutta airport on Tuesday from Jaldapara sanctuary. The aircraft landed at the airport around 6am and took off at 10am. The flight, usually from Delhi to Tokyo via Bangkok, was diverted through Calcutta on Wednesday for carrying the elephants.Jaldapara jumbos off to Yokohama
