World’s Loneliest Elephant Dies At Spanish Zoo

For most of her life, this elephant didn’t have a friend in the world.

For the past 43 years, Flavia, an Asian elephant, lived at Cordoba Zoo in southern Spain, where she first arrived at the age of 3.

Since the day she arrived, Flavia never saw another elephant, according to animal welfare group PACMA. While elephants are incredibly social in the wild — and females often stay with their mothers for life — she was forced to live alone.
