The elderly female elephant Jenny in the Karlsruhe zoo gets company: In the next few days, the 48-year-old elephant cow Saida from the Leipzig zoo will move to her retirement home for Asian elephants.

As the city of Karlsruhe announced on Monday, the two animals still know each other from earlier times in Hamburg's Hagenbeck Zoo - but according to a spokesman for the Karlsruhe Zoo, they weren't particularly green there.

Karlsruhe - "Let's see how it goes," he said.

"We hope for a community of convenience between the two."

Since the death of at least 54-year-old Nanda in August - the exact age of Nanda is unknown - 38-year-old Jenny has been the only elephant in the residence, which was specially designed for the needs of old elephants.

Neither she nor Saida particularly like the company of other conspecifics.

If necessary, the two elderly animals could be separated from each other without isolating them, said the zoo spokesman.

A trunk contact is possible at any time.
