Help The Zoo Name Its Baby Elephant

Posted July 11, 2013 by Eric Griffey in Blotch

The folks at the Fort Worth Zoo are beaming like proud parents. The zoo is now home to a baby girl elephant, or as they call it, a female Asian elephant calf. Like many parents, the zoo staff is having a tough time picking a name for the newborn. But they have narrowed it down, and if you’d like to vote, do so on the zoo’s Facebook page.

The lil’ elephant, born at 3:34 a.m. Sunday, weighed in at a tiny 330 pounds and 38 inches tall. No Name is only the second elephant born at the zoo in its 104 years.

A statement from the zoo said she will only be available for viewing at various times throughout the day, when she is not snuggling with her mother, a 40-year-old named Rasha.
