Elephant Self Storage , Elephant of the Month, Samiya

Samiya, meaning ‘incomparable’ was named following a public competition on Dublin Zoo’s Facebook Page. Samiya weighed 68kgs when born, around the same as an adult human.

She was the third elephant calf to be born in 2014, with three arriving over a 10-week period. Although she has become known for her gentle, quiet and timid manner that has never stopped her from wrestling and splashing in the two large outdoor pools with her sister Ashoka and half brother Kavi.

Samiya enjoys spending time with her mother Bernhardine creating a unique bond the two are often found napping alongside one another for several hours throughout the day.
