Holiday song book for captive elephants standard

New video of Chendra standard

Chendra 1 Chendra was seen during the July 2nd Zoo concert exhibiting her usual stereotypical circling. It doesn’t seem like the new exhibit has made much of a difference for Chendra. She was imported from Malyasia in 1999 and has been diagnosed with severe steretotypical behavior and she developed severe foot disease within months of coming to the zoo.
