Keeping of circus elephants and their minimum nutritional requirements


, : Keeping of circus elephants and their minimum nutritional requirements. Praktische Tierarzt 67(9): 809-811

The widely varying types and amounts of feed recommended in the literature are examined, bearing in mind that illness, e.g., severe anaemia, especially among young elephants, may often be due to quantitative or qualitative deficiency of the diet. As a rule of thumb, 100 to 150 litres clean drinking water, depending on weather, and 100 kg good-quality feed daily, with supplementary vitamins and minerals, are proposed.
