Comments / pictures

Siporex was sponsored from the concrete factory SIPOREX in Denmark

1988-06-16: While he was still in free-contact, Siporex attacked the head elephantkeeper Rolf Amelung badly during training performance. After this he was kept off-hand, and got worse feet.

According to Rolf Amelung he was about 3,24 meters high by shoulders.
