ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Rozie the elephant's new calf made her public debut without a name Wednesday at the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo.
Park visitors were able to catch their first glimpses of the female calf born last Wednesday. She is the seventh member of the zoo's elephant herd.
"It's a very exciting day here for us not only to be unveiling the baby but to unveil a multigenerational elephant herd," said Rhonda Saiers, the zoo's elephant manager. "We've got grandma and big sister daisy and mom all here at the BioPark showing people how elephants should behave. It's a great setup for us."
The calf won't be nameless for long.
The BioPark Facebook page has several proposed named that people can vote for including Chamiza, Jazmine, Nita and Roxy.
