Elephant calf continues to thrive, public will vote on five names chosen by elephant staff

Rose-Tu and baby are doing really well today. The baby is trotting around the stall with Rose-Tu showing lots of energy and vigor. The staff gave mom and baby an opportunity to see her big brother Samudra and touch trunks. The introduction went really well with the baby reaching out to Samudra at one point.

There have been a lot of questions about the name of the baby and we have received thousands of suggestions. Our elephant staff has chosen five baby names, and early next week, we’re asking the public to vote online for the one they like the best. Stay tuned for details.
