Malee - OKC Zoo's Baby Elephant

On April 15 at the Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical garden Asha our 16-year-old Asian elephant gave birth to a little girl weighing in at 304 pounds!!  This was the first elephant birth in the zoo's history.  Sneezy who is her daddy lives at the Tulsa zoo and is 39 years old.  

Our little baby girl has been named Malee.  I think there are many of us that feel like she is "our" elephant. 

Isn't she cute?

Here she is peaking out from under Momma.

Until next time,
