The Studbook lists this elephant as 'Lost to Follow-up.'

In November 1962, the Taronga Zoo purchased two elephants, Gigi and Gilda, from Singapore. Six years later in November 1968, the same pair and a giraffe were sold to Ashton's Circus. Alfons Arndt had been their trainer at the zoo; when the circus acquired them, Captain Fritz Schultz picked up the animals and drove them to the show while it was playing in Adelaide. He added some additional training to the animals.

Gilda died after being poisoned by the cumpulosry tick spray required for ungulates when passing from state to state in Australia. With very sparse body hair, the poison was absorbed through the skin on a hot day, killing the animal.
