WHO’S NEW AT THE ZOO?
Well, the Saint Louis Zoo had another blessed event over the weekend, and they only had to wait 21 months for the arrival. Ellie, the Indian Elephant, (41) gave birth to her second daughter. The new baby is the fourth daughter for Raja, the father, who was the first elephant born at the zoo 20 years ago. Young stud!
You are allowed two AHH!!s for the 251 pound baby.
The public is invited for vote for the name of the new baby girl …CAI rhymes with high and means feminine, VIOLET, WILLOW, HARPER, or PRIYA which means dear. Personally, I voted for WILLOW.
The Zoo now has a three generation family herd of 12, much like elephants in the wild. In addition to their River’s Edge naturalistic habitat where the public can see them, the herd also has their private secluded Elephant Woods where they can romp and rumpus as if they were in the wild.
