WASHINGTON (AP) — A new Asian elephant has arrived at the National Zoo in Washington, reuniting her with another elephant she once lived with in Sri Lanka.

Zoo officials say 37-year-old Bozie arrived Wednesday. She traveled by truck more than 1,100 miles from her old home at the Baton Rouge Zoo in Louisiana. Bozie’s only other companion died in Baton Rouge in March.

The zoo says records show Bozie and 38-year-old Shanthi lived together briefly as young calves at the Elephant Orphanage Department of Wildlife Conservation in Sri Lanka before being transported to North America.

The National Zoo recently opened a larger elephant facility after a seven-year, $56 million overhaul. The expansion more than tripled the elephants’ living space.
