These pictures were taken by Mike Owyang. (Look at my opening post for another of his wonderful pictures.)
Taj was 71 and, at the time of this picture, the oldest living Asian elephant in North America. Terry, who died two days ago was thought to be one of the oldest dolphins in captivity. She was 51.
Mike and my friend, Tanya, were very close friends of Terry and I asked Tanya to write about her. That will be in the next posting.
