There’s a new resident at the African Lion Safari.
Nellie, the first “All Canadian” Asian elephant was born on August 2nd and weighed in at 309 pounds!
Nellie is the third calf for her 19 year old mother, Natasha and the first for her father, Johnson and joins a family of 11 other elephants.
She is the 14th elephant to be born at African Lion Safari since 1991.
Guests visiting African Lion Safari this fall can meet Nellie and her mother at the end of each Elephant Round Up Performance, weather permitting.
