Mother, Phoebe, is a 31-year-old Asian elephant who came to the Zoo in January 2002. While Phoebe has had the opportunity to breed with Hank, a 30-year-old male elephant at the Columbus Zoo, the attempts were unsuccessful.

In March 2017, the calf’s mom, Phoebe, was inseminated with two male elephants’ sperm, which is standard procedure. But the team still hasn’t been able to confirm whether Hank or Samson is the father.
