Jumbo (1861 ? September 15, 1885) was a large African Bush Elephant, born 1861 in the French Sudan ? present-day Mali ? imported to a Paris zoo, transferred to the London Zoo in 1865, and sold in 1882 to P. T. Barnum, for the circus.
A life-size statue of the elephant was erected in 1985 in St. Thomas to commemorate the centennial of the elephant's death. It is located on Talbot Street on the west side of the city.
