Minbu, originally born and raised in a logging camp, is the dominant female of our elephant herd, known as a matriarch. She can be nervous of new situations and often is the last elephant to try something new, although she adapts well to a change in routine.
Minbu is very caring to Noorjahan’s 3 year old calf Esha and gets along better with Noorjahan since the birth of Esha.
One of her favourite treats is melon which our keepers use as a reward during health check training.
