2010: The 224 pound new calf, born on Valentines Day 2010, was born to second time mother Ndula. She gave birth to her first calf shortly after arriving in California pregnant from the wild. He joined a herd of five males and eight females, and made the sixth calf in the herd born at the Wild Animal Park.
