Mongkol is a weary old bull rescue elephant. He was forced to work his entire life in the logging trade. Mongkol now lives a peaceful life at Elephants World and we’ve become good friends. He has a gentle, sensitive character and occasionally likes to listen to calm classical piano music at his favorite spot by the River Kwai.
