The Zoo currently has three Elephants:

  • Bodhi M, (2004)
  • Groucho, M, (ca. 1971)
  • Billy, M, (2008)



The Elephants rotate throughout the Toyota Elephant Passage with the Greater One-Horned Rhinoceroses. The males were formerly kept completely separate but new research has led to letting the males socialize together.

Beloved Dolly, F, (ca. 1964), passed in 2016. Kimbo, F, (ca. 1970) passed away in 2014. Longtime Zoo resident Mimi, F, (ca. 1959) passed away in 2012.
