When 308 pound Malti was born at the Calgary Zoo, she was the second calf for her 17 year old mother Maharani and 26 years old father Spike. She was a full F2 generation, meaning both of her parents were born in captivity. The first calf born to the pair was rejected at birth and died 3 weeks later of infections.
