BABY STEPS — Tufani, the first African elephant calf to be born at
Disney’s Animal Kingdom, is now exploring the savannah with his
mother. The animal managers and keepers introduced the
two-month-old to each female member of the herd one at a time until
they were confident it was safe for him to venture into the
savannah with all of the elephants. He is the fourth surviving
African elephant calf in North America to have resulted from an
artificial insemination procedure.
