Time to pop some bottles!
The Albuquerque BioPark in New Mexico has reason to celebrate. They welcomed a healthy baby female Elephant calf on October 2!
The little baby is so disgustingly cute we don't know what to do with ourselves!
She's been spending all her time with her mama Rozie. The elephant manager said:
"Rozie and her calf are doing well and are getting to know each other behind-the-scenes. She is learning to nurse and getting more steady on her feet. She'll get to meet her sister, Daizy, and grandmother, Alice, within a few days."
The zoo is part of an elephant conservation breeding program, so this little calf is extra special!
Elephants are endangered, and sadly there are only 40,000 wild ones left running around. So she's a special little girlie!
Can't wait til the calf makes her public debut in a few weeks!
For now, satisfy your need for elephant cuteness by checking out a video of the baby AFTER THE JUMP!!
