Our Elephants 

Bella 

  • Bella is the newest elephant to Happy Elephant Home. She arrived at the end of 2019 whilst she was 16 months pregnant.

  • She is the youngest in the herd at only 15 years old. 

  • She has previously worked in the circus as a baby until she got too big when she was moved to a tourist  riding camp.

  • Bella quickly became too big and pregnant to have people riding in a basket on her back so came to stay at Happy Elephant Home. 

  • She has a short tail due to a bite, the same as Lam Yai. 

  • She is a very curious elephant and is always the first there when food is around. 

  • She loves to spend time in the river and mud pit.

  • Her mahout is Tanai. 

Lam Yai

  • Lam Yai came to Happy Elephant home in 2019 at 29 years old.

  • She was used as a circus elephant before she was rescued to Happy Elephant Home. 

  • She has a shortened tail due to an elephant biting it off whilst performing in the circus. 

  • She is a very playful elephant and especially loves the mudpit and river.

  • She loves to spend her time with Liam, who is a very similar size and shape.

  • Her mahout is Pong. 

Tong Bai 

  • Tong Bai came to happy elephant home in 2015 and is now 42 years old. 

  • In Thai her name means ‘golden leaf’. 

  • She started her working life as a logging elephant but there was an accident that injured her knees and hip so was taken to be a riding elephant instead.

  • She still has the imprint of the basket on her back which makes her easy to spot in the herd. 

  • Due to her untreated injuries she is unable to bend her back left leg and so has to swing her leg when she walks. 

  • She is a very gentle, slow old elephant. 

  • Her mahout is Johnny.

  • She is the oldest, at 48 years old and the smallest elephant in the herd. 

  • She was rescued from the logging industry.

  • She is blind in her right eye and because of this she moves very slowly. 

  • Her best friend in the herd is Bella. The only time you see Molo move quickly is when Bella calls to her.

Liam

  • Liam is 28 years old.

  • She is the tallest elephant in the herd and very independent.

  • She came to Happy Elephant Home in 2016.
