Comments / pictures

In late August 2009, the Berlin Zoo sold three of their four year old, captive born Asian elephants. The two males and female, Yoma, Horis and Cinta, were all sired by Ankhor to different cows. They were transported by truck to open the new elephant exhibit at the Rostow Zoo in November.

Contradictory records:

EEP state June 2005 as birthday for Yoma, other sources, including Berlin Pierpark annual reports, state May 2005.
