Baby Elephant Walk

The Asian elephant population of Syracuse went up by one yesterday. I can't remember ever seeing pictures of a newborn elephant before, but they are pretty neat. I've never actually been to the zoo here, but it sounds like a pretty good facility, especially for a smaller city. The baby elephant may look small, but he already weighs in at 345 lbs.

Sadly, Kedar died only a couple of days later after falling into a pool. Four nearby elephants tried to pull him out, and a handler dove in to hold his trunk above water, but it was too late. How sad.
