Ajabu was born on May 14, 2016 at the Dallas Zoo to mom Mlilo, one of the elephants rescued from drought-stricken Swaziland last spring. At birth, he weighed 175 pounds and stood 3 feet tall, with a tiny trunk just over a foot long. A constant ball of energy, Ajabu enjoys “sparring” with tree branches, pushing his favorite ball around, and exploring with his trunk, which he recently discovered makes noises when he’s excited. As a growing calf that needs plenty of rest, Ajabu will make regular appearances in the Giants of the Savanna for limited time periods. With your adoption you will receive a Zookeeper’s report, photo, and limited edition elephant plush.
