Kimbo, a 42-year-old, female Asian elephant from Fort Worth Zoo arrived safely at Denver Zoo last night and is getting acquainted with her new state-of-the-art indoor quarters inside Toyota Elephant Passage. She is the first new female elephant to move into the exhibit and will eventually join longtime resident elephant Dolly as a herd mate. Weather permitting; guests will be able to see Kimbo in late January after she clears a mandatory month-long quarantine process.
Kimbo brings Denver Zoo's Asian elephant population back up to four including its two bulls, 8-year-old Bodhi and 41-year-old Groucho.
