Elephant Friends

 

Everyone needs a good pal or two—even elephants! Elephants form deep family bonds and live in a herdA group of animals that travels and feeds together. of related females and their babies. The herdA group of animals that travels and feeds together. is led by the oldest, and often largest, female in the herdA group of animals that travels and feeds together., called the matriarch.

 

At the San Diego Zoo, the herdA group of animals that travels and feeds together. leader is Mary, so when newcomer Mila came to the Zoo, she was introduced to Mary first. After a few get-togethers, Mary and Mila became good friends, and then Mila got to know the rest of her new herdA group of animals that travels and feeds together.. Now it’s one big, happy crew.
