Zoo_Boy, So, all elephant males have been evaluated. That leaves a breeding male at Melbourne and one at Perth, isn't it. Perhaps Heman could be used for AI (this has been tried with an ageing bull at Amsterdam zoo before). patrick, Can you tell me which elephants are to be imported from Thailand (genetic make-up). That has not been all to clear for me. I guess also that if the legislative has put forward that housing is prime, that one way or other the Asian elephants will be moved out to Dubbo. Perhaps they could have the Indian rhino at Taronga instead?
