The baby elephants at the Houston Zoo Baylor and Tupelo enjoy playing in the water.
Recently, the keepers gave Baylor and Tupelo a big kiddie pool.
Now that Baylor weighs more than 1,100 pounds and Tupelo about 600 pounds, the small, inflatable pools do not last longer than 5 minutes without getting popped. Houston Zoo keepers have to give Baylor and Tupelo a much bigger kiddie pool to play in.
The babies now get a family size pool which is 120 inches in length and can hold both calves. It is a lot more durable and usually lasts for about 5 uses before it has to be replaced. Playing in the pool is a fun enrichment activity for the babies and the pool is given to them when the weather allows.
