Named after the Palembang prince who founded the kingdom of Singapura.

The male calf born at the Singapore Night Safari was the fifth elephant born at the location, though the first in nine years to the herd of Asian elephants. The 151 kilogram newborn was the third for twenty five year old Nandong. He was sired by Chawang, the only bull elephant residing at the Singapore Night Safari or Singapore Zoo. The birth brought the total number of Asian elephants at Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS), parent company of Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, Singapore Zoo and the upcoming River Safari, to 11
