Name meaning: Perfect
Arrival date: April 2007
Arrival age: 40
Rescue location: Suphanburi
History: Somboon was used in the logging, trekking and street begging industries before being rescued. She had been roaming the streets for several years before being hit by a speeding car in 2006. The collision did not break her hind leg, but it did enough damage to leave her limping, and so her owners had to retire her.
Somboon now lives at WFFT’s Newlands with Khan Kluey, WFFT’s only male elephant. She took on the role of his adoptive mother shortly after being rescued.
Characteristics: Somboon walks with an obvious limp after her car collision. She has a small hole in her right ear, pink depigmentation on the bottom of both ears, and slightly sunken temple domes. Staff and volunteers both agree she is a very beautiful elephant.
Somboon is very active and loves her food. She has a caring nature and watches closely over Khan Kluey.
