Hi forumites,

The Tucson zoo has a new, clumsy, darling little African Ellie female that has captured the hearts of the people. So why am I posting about a zoo elephant on this forum?

Well, her parents are both native South Africans. And, more than that, both are originally from Kruger. (I wish they were still there, but I have to say that the ellie enclosure at our zoo is very nice and spacious and our ellie family are fantastic ambassadors for their species)

Long story short, the zoo is holding a poll to name this cheeky little girl. Maybe some forumite feedback would be good? :) :)

Such a cutie :k pity she has to grow up in a Zoo and not in the wide open spaces of Kruger, but I'm sure she will be very well cared for there
