Our elephants

Kammoon

Kammoon is a name for people in Isaan (north-eastern) language.

In 2019 she is estimated to be over 60-years-old.

To our knowledge she has not had any babies.

She came from Isaan and was rented out by her owner, mainly to be a begging elephant.

Kammoon weighs approximately 3500 kilograms.

Kammoon is the shorter but fatter elephants of the two, and you will always spot her eating. She is a brave and independent female, and is a great support for Malee.

Malee

Malee’s name translates to Jasmin.

She was logging in Thailand when a log hit her and she fractured her left rear leg.

Her owner found her in Kanchanaburi province.

Like Kammoon she is estimated to be over 60-years-old in 2019.

Malee has had babies in the past.

She is approximately 2450 kilograms.

Malee is tall and slender, because her legs still hurts sometimes, she can’t gain too much weight. She is gentle and relies on Kammoon for support.

Malee, Kammoon and their good friend Somboon (who passed away) all met each other 20 years ago when they were purchased by the same owner. They spent all their time together and were nicknamed the three musketeers.
