Comments / pictures

1985: Wildlife and National Parks in the Malaysian Government donated Layang Layang to the London Zoo as a diplomatic gift in October 1985.

2009: On New Year's Eve 2009, Azizah knocked a handler into a tree during a routine walk. The keeper was hospitalized with bruising to his arm.

2011-10-18: Experienced mum Aziza gave birth to her third baby a male- after going through the longest pregnancy ever experienced at the Zoo. The normal gestation period for an Asian elephant is 22 months but this new calf was sitting comfortably for approximately 700 days nearly two years!
