Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jumbo (1861 - September 15, 1885) was a large African Bush Elephant, born 1861 in the French Sudan - present-day Mali - imported to a Paris zoo, transferred to the London Zoo in 1865, and sold in 1882 to P. T. Barnum, for the circus. The giant elephant's name has spawned the common word "jumbo," meaning large in size. Jumbo was born in 1861 in the French Sudan, whence he was imported to France and kept in the old zoo Jardin des Plantes, near the railway station Gare d'Austerlitz in Paris.show more
