Next, The Houston Zoo has a brand new resident! Tupelo the asian elephant, weighing 273 lbs was born on Sunday. She'll (oops, girl elephant - my bad, thanks for the quick correction "Anon") be closely monitored and the elephant barn will be "shut" for awhile, but, this is wonderful news. She is joining her 5 month old half-brother Baylor, we'll see how the siblings get along!
