For Radar

Just out of curiosity, who was Thai's escort/anchor elephant the fateful day he lamed in 1979?

Didn't Eloise have only one female? Would that be her pictured? Not much of an anchor elephant; Thai is chained to the van in front. No hardware on the second animal. Looks to be pretty relaxed too, carrying her hay as she goes along.

What was the name of the one female Eloise had? An anchor elephant is often along "just in case". Like an "anchor" on a boat, it doesn't have to be used, but it it is there if the need for it arises.
