Description:
Gray, fuzzy, a little wrinkled, and waving around one helluva snout, Hansa the baby elephant was born at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle -- and is now a star! Hansa, which means “supreme happiness” in Thai, is a rare and endangered Asian elephant born in captivity to mom Chai. Clare Meeker follows Hansa’s true-life story and tells of Chai’s difficulties getting pregnant (including a 2,000-mile roadtrip to Missouri to flirt with an 11,000-pound male!), her 22-month pregnancy, and the wondrous birth of 235-pound Hansa. Fully illustrated with full-color photographs, this fun and educational book chronicles Hansa’s remarkable birth and includes facts about elephant habitat, feeding habits, and anatomy.
