The Pittsburgh Zoo is no Columbus or Sand Diego Zoo, but it has its high points. The new Polar Bear exhibit is bad ass, and I am always amused at how lazy and apathetic our Rhinoceros looks. But, no animal draws them in quit like a baby Elephant. A couple years back I think we had a calf running around the zoo, so I am pumped that this month alone we have had two female calfs born to two different mothers. Man these elephants are fucking horny. On July 29th Svannah a 26 year old African elephant gave birth to a female calf, and on July 25th at 5:30 a.m. Moja, another African Elephant, gave birth to another female calf. Yes, we have two baby elephants less than a month old running around at the Zoo. Moja's pregnancy was the longest ever for a captive Elephant at 673 days. See, Pittsburgh isn't all stories of murder, old people, and Andrea Curry-Demus cutting babies out of dead teenagers. So its summer, go to the zoo and check out the incredible baby Elephants!!
