After a pregnancy lasting almost 23 months, Shanti, a 19-year-old Asian elephant, delivered a healthy 348-pound male calf Tuesday morning May 4, 2010 at the Houston Zoos McNair Asian Elephant Habitat. The calf has been named Baylor by the Zoos elephant care team in recognition of the unprecedented and ongoing advances made by Baylor College of Medicines science team to significantly reduce the threat of a potentially lethal elephant herpes virus.

Shanti began exhibiting signs of labor around 10:30pm Monday night. Attended by the Houston Zoo's elephant care team and assisted by the Zoos veterinary staff, Shanti delivered the baby at 9:32 am on Tuesday, May 4.
