The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is the sister park of our beloved San Diego Zoo, with the two being located about 30 minutes from each other. It used to be called the San Diego Wild Animal Park but then their branding people got a hold of it and changed the name/screwed up all of our tags. C'est la vie.
Long story short, the Safari Park has a slew of baby elephantssee here and here for posts they wrote about the August arrivaland we headed over to see them. They were splashing around in their exhibit's pool, and were (as expected) very small. The Park has had an astounding 12 calves born to the herd of African elephants that lives there.
So...flight delays. How awful are those, right? Send a jealousy-inducing photo to your friends riding out the storm now. It'll make you feel a whole lot better. Baby elephants are highly recommended, obviously.
