IT'S A BOY!: A newborn African elephant calf and his mother spend time bonding at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The 327-pound calf was welcomed to the herd of elephants June 28, 2008 at Disney's Animal Kingdom after 26-year-old "Moyo" gave birth to the male elephant . The calf, which has yet to be named, is the heaviest elephant calf ever born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom which has the largest African elephant herd in North America. This is the fourth elephant born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Tufani, who is Moyo’s first male calf, was born in 2003; Kianga, a female, was born in 2004; and Nadirah, the youngest female, joined the herd in 2005. All remain on the savannah at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Well, the baby elephant isn't as cute as a fuzzy kitten or puppy but he's very cool! Congrats to mom Moyo and the Animal Kingdom staff! :thumright:
