The female elephant name is Bev, family group BB. She was born in 1966 and unfortunately she died due to the drought in 2009.

Thank you Soila!

Thanks so much Soila for answering my question! And is that Bala, Barrymore, and Bodiaf, the elephants infront and behind Bev??

Identifying Elephants

hi DFord,

As I think we've said before on the website, whilst we're delighted to share as much information as we can about the elephants, you must appreciate that we can't answer every single question. Soila kindly identified the elephants for you - please now let her get on with all the other work that keeps her extremely busy, and away from the computer! Reliably identifying elephants from photographs isn't easy - as taking good ID pictures is very hard. Of the other elephants in the picture, one is a very young calf (and we don't know exactly when the photo was taken) and the other is almost totally hidden, so it's unlikely we'd know who it is.
