Rio Grande Zoo

Daizy the Baby Elephant Having a Ball!

Little Daizy was actually born at Albuquerque's Rio Grande Zoo last year, but these adorable pictures just came to our attention so we thought we'd share them. This was the first baby for Daizy's mom, Rozie. The pregnancy was recommended by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan for Asian elephants. Because Rozie has no siblings, she is genetically unique. Her calf adds to the diversity and strength of the North American population of Asian elephants.
