Oh, Baby! Newborn Elephant Tips the Scales in Australia
Is there an elephant in the room? At Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia, the answer is yes! A still-to-be-named baby calf was born on the Fourth of July to mom Thong Dee. According to Life.com, the baby will live in a heated barn until he’s ready to head out in public to the zoo’s Wild Asia display. Though he’s still a “little guy,” he reportedly weighed 220 lbs. just two days after his birth! We can’t wait to watch him grow up.
