The Changsha Zoo in Hunan province has built a large new iron cage to help transport a super Asian elephant to a new home.

The big cage weighs three tons and was made for the elephant, Pa Mai, which stands more than 3.2 meters high.

The cage can also be used to transport other big animals such as giraffes, hippos, lions and tigers.

The big cage reaches 3 m high, 4.5 m long and 1.5 m wide.

The zoo will move to its new location before October.
