Happy news about animals
The first elephant born at the Louisville Zoo made his first public appearance Wednesday afternoon.
A 21-year-old African elephant named Mikki gave birth to the calf last month.
He was born weighing 285lbs and was 37.5 inches tall.
It’s the first elephant born in the zoo’s 38-year history.
The zoo is holding a contest to name the baby and other new additions including a female pygmy hippo, a female antelope and three maned wolf pups.
