In November 2001, the 320 pound newborn calf of the Smithsonian National Zoo was only the second Asian elephant in the world to be born through Artificial Insemination, following the birth of Haji two years previous at the Dickerson Park Zoo in November 1999. He was the fifth elephant in the world conceived via the method. Kandula's one hundred percent Sri Lankan heritage would leave him visibly tuskless, as less than ten percent of those males grow long tusks.
In 2010, at eight years old Kandula measured 7.5 feet tall at the shoulder and weighed 5400 pounds.
