22 months of pregnancy is a long, long time to be carrying around a baby, so I’m sure that Shanti the Asian elephant at the Houston Zoo is feeling quite relieved.

She delivered a healthy male calf yesterday, October 2nd, who weighs 384 pounds and stands at 40 inches tall. Check out the Baby Elephant blog for info on the baby naming contest, baby updates, cool facts about elephants and even Houston Zoo coupons!
