Comments / pictures

Before Lily was listed at Lily (Sirikit), but the name is simply Lily - the other name was an option for folks to vote on, but Lily won.

2018-11-29: The Oregon Zoo is in mourning today following the sudden and unexpected loss of Lily, the youngest of the zoo elephant family, one day before her sixth birthday. Despite exhaustive efforts by veterinarians and care staff to save her, Lily succumbed late last night to a sudden onset of endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV), a rapidly progressing and often fatal disease to which calves are particularly susceptible.
