1985: "Eliot, yet another daughter was born in April 1985."

"Eliot, Echo’s 1985 daughter, is one of Cynthia Moss’s favorite members of the family, playful and fun loving. She had her first calf, of unknown sex, right inside Cynthia’s research camp in 1998 when she was 13. It disappeared the next day, possibly killed by hyenas. Two years later, another calf was born, but it was weak and never stood. It too died. Finally, on December 3, 2002, Eliot gave birth to a strong, healthy, male calf who survived. He was named Emilio. Eliot has been very protective of this calf; she won’t tolerate anything happening to him"

"When Eliot was 13 years old in 1998 she gave birth to her first calf right in the middle of our camp one night. I wasn't there but the researcher who went out the next morning and found her with the new calf. The next day it was gone and we suspect that it may have been killed by hyenas. Two years later she gave birth again. My assistants found her with a weak calf who couldn't stand. It too died."

2002: "Eliot, Echo's 17-year-old daughter had just given birth early that morning. We drove into where the EBs were and found Eliot and the new calf, a male, still very shaky on his legs."

2012: "Echo's family, the EBs, have had seven new calves since November. Ebony, Eliot, Enid, Ella, Elettra, Echeri, and Eleanor have given birth to six males and one female. Eliot has the female, but this calf more than holds her own with her male cousins."
