Baby Elephant Gains Confidence at Omaha Zoo
January 22, 2022
Under Kiki’s watchful eye, her calf continued exploring the calf training area at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo last week!
Each day, she becomes more and more interested in her environment, especially smaller enrichment items she can push and move at her age, such as a firehose cube.
Getting used to this space also means getting more comfortable on the scale. The calf’s natural curiosity—and the trusting bond mom has with our keeper staff—has her freely walking about the scale’s surface.
