Sumatran Elephant (Raflesia)
G’day! My name is Raflesia and I am the youngest member of the Sumatran elephant family here at Australia Zoo. I am a very smart elephant; I enjoy learning and like to show off.
I am always front and centre whenever there is something happening as I am a real attention hog. Although I am the youngest animal in the group, I am one of the most confident and will bravely check out anything new in my environment.
My best friend is Megawati, but I also really enjoy spending time with my other two herd mates, Widya and Christina. I love banana and dates, but truthfully, I am happy to eat just about anything!
My herd mates and I are here at Australia Zoo to be ambassadors for our wild cousins. Deforestation and habitat loss have taken us to the brink of extinction. The good news is, my wild friends and I are now a protected species and with everyone working together our future is looking so much brighter. You beauty!
We are hoping to have our beautiful Sumatran elephants adventuring in their world-class Elephantasia by mid-2020, complete with a huge swimming pool, fountain, plethora of plants, trees and grassland.
