Nellie, 4 weeks old and 309 pounds, brings African Lion Safari’s elephant herd up to 12

After a 21-month pregnancy, little NELLIE, daughter of Natasha and Johnson, arrived in Canada on August 2, 2013.  She is the first naturally-born Canadian elephant, and joins the rest of the herd on 81 hectares of grassland and forest at African Lion Safari, roughly an hour west of TORONTO via Highway 401.  The Safari elephants go swimming twice daily, in between 18 hours of eating.  For directions, check the website: http://www.lionsafari.com
