Elephant Calf At 4 Days Old
January 11, 2022
Omaha Zoo’s newest addition is going on Day 4 into the world and is visibly more coordinated and mobile! Kiki's calf has done some nursing and like everyone else, enjoys a good snooze. (Being cute is sure rough!) Saturday night alone, the calf slept a lot, off and on from 6 p.m. – 5:30 a.m. This is known as recumbent sleep. Jayei, the matriarch of the herd, has been a big help along the way, not only mentoring Kiki, but also looking out for the calf as if it were her own.
