Years alone: 16


Mito the elephant stands in her enclosure bobbing her head continuously at the Kyoto City Zoo in Japan where she has been kept for 38 years. This is a stress coping behavior seen in animals whose mental and physical needs are not being met. She is cordoned off from the other 4 younger elephants in the zoo, who she does not respond well to.


She’s been alone for 16 years.
