Senior moments: Three animals show good care leads to long life

2008-04-21 - Vallejo, United States. Linda Goldston

Sixty-eight-year-old Taj likes to nap in the pool, resting her nose on the far end. "She's a year younger than my mom, so she's part of my extended family," said Steve Johnson, supervisor of the park's Elephant Encounter, who has worked with Taj for 28 years. Taj, a former circus elephant who has been at the park since 1978, cares for the younger elephants the same way female elephants do in the wild. One of seven elephants at the park, she weighs 9,000 pounds and stands 8 1/2 feet tall but is s...

Pachyderm predictions. Tava the elephant kicks field goals in order to divine the outcome of the Super Bowl

2008-02-02 - Vallejo, United States. RICH FREEDMAN

Word on the street has it the camel was traded to a zoo to be named later, the giraffe was on the injured reserve list with a muscle twitch in his neck, and the walrus had a dentist appointment. So up stepped Tava, a 9,200-pound African elephant with, apparently, a golden toe. And Six Flags Discovery Kingdom had its kicker to showcase Friday in taking pre-Super Bowl hype to a new level. With two available footballs - each with a logo representing big game foes New England and the New York Giants...

The scene in Vallejo on Wednesday morning looked like a cross between Noah's Ark and "Jurassic Park." It wasn't. Instead, the occasion was a rebranding ritual: Marine World is now Discovery Kingdom.
