The 'real' Jumbo was born 1860 in the Sudan and after captured as orphan he was sold to an Italian animal dealer and explorer. Jumbo was exported to Paris, then transferred to London Zoo, and finally sold to the United States.
Jumbo's shoulder height has been estimated to be 3.23 metres (10.6 ft).
His tiny sister’s shoulder height here is not more than 20 mm (0,78“), still much to grow ☺︎
