The 236-pound elephant was born to Rani, the St Louis Zoos 10-year-old Asian elephant. This is Ranis first baby and second for the father, Raja. Raja is also the father of little Maliha, who was born in August. Its the second calf in a year at the zoo. Ranis mother, Ellie, gave birth last year to Maliha, also fathered by Raja.

Jade survived two viremia episodes, one with EEHV1B and later with EEHV1A.

2009-02-11: Jade, a 23-month-old Asian elephant at the St. Louis Zoo, has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal strain of herpes. Jade is receiving antiviral Medication and round-the-clock care from the veterinary and keeper staff. Jade had been acting lethargic Sunday. A blood sample submitted to the Smithsonian National Zoological Parks elephant herpes Research laboratory Monday showed the presence of elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV) .

2009-12-10: Herpes Virus returns to St. Louis Zoos elephant Jade
Jade experienced a recurrence of herpes virus that struck last February, and received intravenous antiviral Medication and 24-hour care. The Zoo didnt expect a relapse because none of the other survivors (of this virus) have had notable relapses.
