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

Contradictory records:
The North American Regional Studbook for the Asian Elephant states this elephant is a male. Another elephant census states she is a female, in addition to numerous news articles.
