      Some of the elephant herd at Chester zoo
    • Writhedhornbill
      There are 10 elephants at Chester.

      The males are:

      Upali, from Zurich, Father Maxi, I don't know mum
      Tunga born at Chester, Father Chang, Mum Thi hi way, born 10/10/04
      Raman born at Chester, Father Upali, Mum Thi hi way, born Nov 2006

      The females are:

      Sheba born in 1956, Sheba is on her last set of teeth. She is on a special diet to keep her from losing weight. When the elephants were housed in the same house as the hippos, Sheba would climb up a wall and go to meet them. She would look at the hippos from the wall and then interact with them. I have a picture in a zoo magazine, I will try to upload it if I can.
      Jangoli born in 1668, Herd matriach
      Maya born in 1972
      Thi Hi Way born at a logging camp in 1982
      Sithami, Father is Chang, Mother is Thi hi Way, born 31/12/97
      Sundara, Father is Chang, Mother is Sithami, born 8/3/04
      Birma, was imported from a french zoo in 2006, and has not seen an elephant for over ten years. She has become good friends with Sheba, and when Sheba goes off show for her PC, Birma will go with her.

      Chang has now gone to Le Pal zoo in France.

      On the picture, there is Sheba, Raman, Tunga or Sundara and Thi Hi way. I can't tell the difference between Tunga and Sundara. The only difference is their sex and that Tunga has the tip of his trunk missing.
