"BULWAGI as a young calf at Lion Country in the 80's. The elephants in the picture are Perkins, a young bull. Bulwagi is standing next to his mother, appropriately named Mama and his father Peter. Peter was a huge bull who towered over all the other elephants. At this time the elephants roamed out in the preserve and were worked free contact. It was called section 6 where the elephants, rhinoceros and zebra roamed." //Brian Kohler
