Comments / pictures

Chico was brought to the Caldwell Zoo in May 2003 from the San Diego Wild Animal Park, where he had resided since 1977. His relocation, as well as three females that went to the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, made possible the import of seven elephants from South Africa. From 2004 to 2010, nine elephants have been born at the facility in California.

Chico is one of the largest elephants in North America. He measures ten Feet tall at the shoulder and weighs over 14500 pounds.
