Comments / pictures

"By the time Nadirah was born, the other elephants were accustomed to the calves, and they became very tolerant. "She became just this little princess," Lehnhardt says. "They allowed her to walk up to virtually any elephant and suckle. Very unusual, wed never seen that before."
John Lehnhardt

In 2003, the decision was made to move Donna, the sole African elephant in the Rio Grande Zoos six elephant group, to the Disney Animal Kingdoms elephant breeding program. At 21 years old, she gave birth to her first calf, Nadirah, a result of natural breeding with Jackson four months after her arrival. She was the fourth calf to be born at the park - three sired by Jackson and a stillbirth sired by Bulwagi.
