This is what a Spanish study shows and has found percussion and cut marks on elephant remains in the site of Preresa.

Sad elephant cheered by Falla adoption

2007-02-06 - Benidorm, Spain

Petita, the loneliest elephant inside the Terra Natura theme park in Benidorm has now become a true star after being adopted by the Antiga de Campanar Falla Chapter. Petita had been scorned by her fellow elephants as she was unable to put on any weight, and she was left to her own devices by the group -much to the astonishment of staff at the park who admitted that they never thought that a herd of elephants could turn on one of its number.

the waif look is out...even in the animal kingdom

2006-11-10 - Benidorm, Spain

This week, the Spanish Media has devoted a lot of space towards Petita, a female Asian elephant in Benidorms Terra Natura. Petita seems to fall short of the current elephantine standards of beauty. Weighing in at just 2,900 kilos, in a world where the average female elephant weighs 4,000 kilos, Petita is too waif-like for any self-respecting elephant. Her clearly visible jaw line and long thin legs seem only to provoke displeasure among her peers who evidently have no time for heroin-chic.
