Welcome to Perth Zoo

Head behind-the-scenes with a keeper who works with the elephants every day and check out the specialist skills you need for managing one of the most powerful animals in the Zoo – a bull elephant.

Putra Mas means ‘Golden Prince’, only he’s not so little any more, tipping the scales at a whopping 4,700 kg.

Keepers work with him at a safe distance every single day to make sure that his mind and body is happy and healthy. They know him the best and understand what a smart, obliging animal he is...when he wants to be!

Watch our keepers put Putra Mas through his paces and discover what it is about him that makes him a keeper favourite.
