Celebs like Gavin Rossdale and Slash rolled out for the unveiling of L.A. Zoo's new "Elephants of Asia" exhibit last night.
The six-acre exhibit features three gentle pachyderm transplants from the San Diego Zoo: Tina, Jewel and 25-year-old Billy and is devoted to exploring the connection between elephants and Asian cultures.
The exhibit cost $42 million dollars to build and was accomplished thanks to protestors (like animal enthusiast Slash) last January urging the city to go forward with plans for the elephant exhibit.
We can't wait to see it!
If you live in the Los Angeles area and feel like scoping it out with family or friends, the exhibit is open daily from 10am-5pm!
