Timbo was the largest and oldest African bull elephant in the US. Renowned as troublemaker he was removed from two zoos before he ended up at Shambala. Brought to the Preserve for the filming of the movie Roar, he lived out his life at the California preserve.
"Timbo's answers are simple. That's what I like about him. It's not difficult and it's not complex. His answers are: 'I need food, I need water, I need water, I need exercise, I need to have fun. So help me do it'."
