The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is Booming with Baby Elephants!

October 2, 2018

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park has another big baby to take care of!  Another baby elephant has been born, Mama Umngani gave birth to a 281-pound female calf and she is the biggest calf ever born at the Safari Park.  Newborn elephants generally weigh between 200 and 268 pounds at birth.  Elephant keepers have been anticipating its birth but the calf came earlier than expected. It was born overnight and the birth was captured on the park's security cameras.

Check out the new baby elephant below!
