Ramos was born wild
1974. Comments / pictures
Ramos was imported from Thailand with other elephants that went to Circo Franco Berosini. He sired his only calf while with the circus. He was later sold to the zoo when he was no longer manageable (he did not kill anyone, but was only dangerous.) The Toluca Zoo had three males and a female, in which all the males are kept separate from one another. In 2007, Ramos was transferred on a minimum four year breeding loan to Africam Safari, where breeding would be attempted with two younger females as part of the second "Programa de Intercambio Reproductivo de Elefante Asiático."
There were two enclosures for Asian elephants. In one was a pair, Ted, a tusked bull about 50 years old, and Bee, a female of about 60; in the other was a lone tuskless bull, Ramos, about 50 years old. All three were donations from a Mexican circus, and had narrowly escaped being destroyed because they killed their trainer and another person. (I am not sure that the ages given above are correct, but that is what I was told.)
