Dr Annie M. Sticke is the elephant expert at the University of Pachyderms, Rhinoceroses and Hippopotami, here to educate the public on these incredible creatures. 

But she was never expecting to have to deal with an ACTUAL elephant. Come and meet Hessi, the playful, gentle giant as she explores the world and makes mischief. Dr Sticke is trying to give her lectures, keep Hessi under control, and sometimes simply to keep up.

We invite you to join Hessi on our walkabout performances, learn about these incredible creatures,  their habits and their habitats, and make a new, giant friend.


Ask us a question, we'd love to chat!

They worked really well as a team, even though Hessi was a little bit cheeky.
