Date Of Birth: 27/04/2005
Jara is part of our Howletts herd and she is mischievious and inquisitive. She is very keen on getting into the mud wallows and the pool and loves nothing more than a splash around. She is a very intelligent elephant and will often be the first to figure out enrichment devices. Jara is 14 years old and is nearly as tall as her Mum Tammi, who is now 32 years old. She has prominent tusks which she uses to de-bark browse.
Jara is very maternal and has taken a large interest in the recent addition to the herd - baby Nusu. Often Jara can be seen letting Nusu suckle from her and will be the first to try and lead him away from his mum. Jara is very close with her own mum Tammi. Often Tammi will not go up to the grass paddocks without Jara, when getting them out in the morning.
