Help Name the New Elephant Born at Fort Worth Zoo

Help Name Baby Elephant Born at Fort Worth Zoo
Fort Worth Zoo

Meet the biggest baby in Texas.

The Fort Worth Zoo welcomed a 330-pound bundle of joy – a female Asian elephant – on Sunday, July 7, and they are asking the public to help find a name for her.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the public can vote on the name either by paper ballot at the zoo or on the zoo’s Facebook page. There are six names to choose from — Belle, Maggie, Rose, Ruby, Sage and Tujuh. Voting started Thursday.

The brand new calf’s mother is 40-year-old Rasha, her father is a 43-year-old bull named Groucho and her sister is 14-year-old Bluebonnet.

Michael Fouraker, the zoo’s executive director, says the calf will well not leave her mother’s side for at least two years and will nurse for “well over a year.”
