Comments / pictures

In 1950, the Denver Zoological Society was formed and the zoo received their first elephant, Cookie. She resided in a small, red brick building with a small outside yard. Cookie was joined by a second elephant, Candy, in 1959, and a new 'Pachyderm Habitat' was constructed. It has since been remodeled but remains the home of the zoo's current pair of Asian female elephants, Mimi and Dolly.
