CONSERVATION NOTE: Asian elephants are listed as Endangered due to habitat loss, poaching and human-elephant conflicts.
MEET THE ELEPHANTS: Little Mac and Sujatha were born and raised in Mysore, India, until they were 18 months old and traded for two California sea lions in 1972. That means they are in their mid-forties!
DIET: Little Mac and Sujatha eat:
- 137 lbs. fortified grains a week
- 24 lbs. celery a week
- 4 lbs. kale a week
- 3 lbs. bananas a week
VIEWING TIP: Plan to have your lunch or afternoon snack at the picnic tables above the elephant enclosure.
