The moving story of Petita the famous elephant from Terra Natura Benidorm inspired a childrens story book a few years ago.
Petita the elephant was excluded and rejected by her herd because of her physical appearance. She was very thin and in the Elephant world "Beauty" is measured by weight, so she was considered ugly and rejected by the others.. Today she is thriving due to the care and attention she received in Terra Natura.
The Nature Park has now based a musical on the story of Petita ,five actors and a large Petita puppet will portray the story which will be performed twice daily in the Amphitheatre in the Park until the month of August.
