    :(Has anyone got any news on the 2year old elephant orphan 'Jummaane'? What a sad story he must be devastated as the picture shows in the Sunday Times. Hope he is okay

    Just had another look at Ele Encyc and it appears that the zoo has been very quick to source three older Asian elephant females from Terra Natura, Benidorm :) So, although not African, they'll provide Jumaane with the company he needs.

    Jumaane and the three Asian females are living two separate enclosure in the Sosto Zoo, so Jumaane has been lonely still. Probably a young African male will be arrived to Sosto in the near future and he will be the friend of Jumaane.
    (the three Asian elephants will be showed to the visitors only next April, when the Green Pyramid will be open)

    I heard that 3 African elephants should come in the next weeks.
    Two from Israel and one from France.

    Was at this zoo in late May, 2012. This is one of the few zoos where I have seen both African and Asian elephants in separate exhibits.
