Baby elephants learn to ride with the herd

Two elephant calves, one a two-week-old unnamed female and the other a nine-week-old male named Zuli, interacted with their mothers and the rest of their herd at the San Diego Zoo. Keepers have their eyes on their development, and say they are doing very well. Zuli was born August 12; The baby girl, born September 26, is nursing more frequently, so she stays closer to mom. Zuli, born at 270 pounds, is now 409 pounds. The female calf, born at 281 pounds, weighed in at 316 pounds. The young elephants will continue to nurse for at least two to four years, gaining 2 to 4 pounds a day.
