The African elephants at the North Carolina Zoo have come to us from various facilities and backgrounds. We have been working toward a long term goal of integrating all of our females into one herd that can be mixed with either of our two males . We are excited! After a series of introductions, our experienced 41 year old bull, Csar, has been successfully integrated with all four of our cows. Having the option to put them together on exhibit provides additional social opportunity and structure similar to elephants in the wild.
