"Suru the elephant found the boy in the smouldering ruins of Saguntum after the Carthaginian army had sacked it, and Suru's driver Carthalo looked after him and taught him all he knew about elephants. Through Suru, Hannibal's favourite elephant, the boy came to know and admire this astonishing young general who planned to lead the Carthaginian army across the Alps to attack Rome."
