Elephant Skeleton

African Plains- Elephant Skeleton. April 12, 2015. These are the actual skeletal remains of a bull African Bush Elephant killed by poachers in Kenya in 1983. The zoo brought the remains over and put them on display as a way to make visitors aware of the problem poaching has on wild elephant populations.

      Do they have some interpretive graphics that go with the elephant remains to tell the story of what they are?

      Below is part of a sign that sits next to the remains. It also gives estimates to the declining numbers of elephant populations and their threats.

      Cool. Thanks, Thylo.

      The skeleton also overlooks the Serengeti Gazelle, Lesser Kudu, and Blue Crane enclosure if anyone was wondering.

      The birds in the background are free-roaming female Indian Peafowl.
