Ghost Zoo--Hague, Netherlands

Israel Isaac painting titled "Caretaker in the Hague Zoo.

Entrance 1901


Incredible site, with great Hague Zoo history and pictures.

Betsy II, an Asian elephant at Hague Zoo (Haagse Dierentuin)

The elephant data base list's one elephant at the Hague Zoo, Betsy II, yet the history site above suggests Betsy III was there in 1925 and there were a number of elephants gifted by the Governor of Palembang. Mr. Easley, your assignment, should you decide to accept it, is to locate those missing elephants and establish whether Betsy was II or III.
