Bambina was among the largest and heaviest asian elephant cows in Europe ever. In 1967, she became severe promlems with a nail, and finally died in blood-poisoning, after some months when she lost weight. Her shoulder height was aproximately 2.97 meters, weight 5 830 kgs half a year before her death, so in her prime she was probably over six ton, which may be a record in europe for an asian cow. Bambina was wild born in Burma, and came to Skansen via Hagenbecks Zoo in Hamburg, as exchange for a european bison bull.
