Document updated2013-04-18:

The North American Regional Studbook lists this elephant with a Temporary Studbook Number, lacking "supporting documentation to validate their identity."

Contradictory records:
SSP studbook state birth year 1912, which does not fit the time she was at Frank Robbins circus
