    Jumbo was a superstar of the Victorian era. Every day tens of thousands of people would visit this adored animal known as "the Children's Pet" at the London Zoo. When P.T. Barnum purchased him for his Greatest Show on Earth, Jumbo's transport to the United States made headlines for weeks. In North America, Jumbo became an instant sensation, and his name entered our lexicon as an adjective for oversized things.
