Barcelona’s over 100-year old, and amazingly compact (many would argue too compact) zoo has a new elephant.
After her long-time companion, Alicia died, experts and laymen alike became concerned with her welfare when she began rocking back and forth and eating her own waste.
A second female elephant, Yoyo was eventually purchased to keep Susi company, but to no avail, as the two females appear to be incompatible, i.e., like so many females of the human persuasion, couldn’t get along.
Now that the two females are finally starting to get along, Barcelona’s Zoo has added a third female elephant to the mix, Bully.
Whether or not that proves to be a good idea is yet to be seen. Of course, many elephant experts now argue that zoos shouldn’t keep elephants at all, because of space and noise issues.
We wouldn’t mind. Our favorite Barcelona Zoo attraction are the aggressive emus and ostriches (hilarious).
