“Seeni is still building a strong relationship with us,” Willie Theison, the zoo's elephant manager, said. “She knows who we are and she responds well to us, but most importantly she needs to be comfortable with us around her, especially when she gives birth. We have been spending more time with her and working with her so she has that level of comfort.”
The pregnancy is Seeni’s second. She delivered her first calf at 14 years old at the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
