  1. The St. Louis Zoo's new elephant. I think he's just a few weeks old. kind of new elephant, this is not the brand new one.
    He and mom wouldn't come above that little crest, so the feet are missing.

    original.

    Cute. Nice capture as well.
    Did they name the baby?
     
  3. Thanks.
    My wife just corrected me (they're so good at that :smile: ) and this is NOT the brand new arrival but one that was born late last fall.

    I don't know what this one's name is, but the new one which apparently is still no ready for public viewing is named Jade.
