How cute is your baby? Probably not this cute.
Packy the Elephant turned 50 on April 14th at the Oregon Zoo. We missed praising him then, so let’s admire him on a Monday morning.
Packy is an icon in Portland. He was the first Asian elephant born in North America in 44 years. He weighed in at 225 pounds and began nursing 45 minutes after his birth. (He’s now 12,000+ pounds and 10.5 feet tall.)
And Packy always enjoys his cake. (Don’t worry: it’s healthy!)
