Following last week’s “Know Your Elephant” post, this week we’re going to talk a little about Rana. Every elephant has her own special features that you can use as identification. Unless you see each individual every day, it can be tricky to tell one elephant from another.
Once you start to notice these details, it will likely be easier for you to identify Rana more easily. She has so many unique physical aspects, but we’ve found these are some of the most helpful things for some to look for.

This is so interesting! We’ve all been looking at photos and videos of these girls for years (or at least months, depending on arrival) – and you are pointing out things I have never noticed! 💕☺️ Thank you!

Thank you for these identification tips they’re very helpful! How was Ranas elbow injured and how long ago was it fused? 💞🐘
