This is a REAL newborn elephant. It weighs @ pounds and stands 2 feet tall. The mother's gestation period is almost 2 years long. Considering that and how large a grown elephant is, this is a logical size for a newborn.
On my bucket list - sloth hug! The aquarium in Dallas has a sloth that they take out to meet-and-greet with the visitors. The other option is to go to Costa Rica to one of the sloth sanctuaries! I want a sloth hug!
