A New Baby Elephant for the Portland Zoo!
Aren’t you excited about the new baby elephant born at the Portland zoo?
I am! I can’t wait to go see her as soon as possible. It’s up to the zoo to decide when we all get to view her, but in the meantime it’s really fun to tune into the zoo’s website and watch the live feed cameras from Rose Tu and babies habitat. You can follow their blog all about Mommy and baby as well!
There’s a baby name vote going on right now too.
- Jaidee (Thai for “good-hearted”)
- Sirikit (name for Thai royalty, literal meaning is “glorious”)
- Rakhi (Sanskrit for “love/bond between siblings”)
- Lily (following the flower theme of mom’s name, Rose-Tu, or Rose for short)
- Siddhi (Sanskrit for “perfection”; wife of Ganesha)
VOTE HERE: http://www.oregonzoo.org Votes will be accepted through Sunday, Dec. 9, at 5 p.m.
The zoo will announce the winning name on Monday, Dec. 10. I don’t know about you, but I’m voting for Lily. Will check back on Monday to see what the winning name is for Portland’s new baby girl!
