Local medical lab, BioPark prepare for pregnant elephant’s delivery day

News

A local medical lab is partnering with the BioPark to get ready for a pregnant elephant’s delivery day. 

Tricore Reference Labs is helping monitor Rozie the elephant’s hormone levels to predict when she’ll go into labor. 

The blood test results should give zoo staff about a two-week window to prepare. 

This is the Asian elephant’s third pregnancy. 

Rozie is the mother of 4-year-old Jasmine who also lives at the BioPark.
