There is a new addition at the Denver Zoo! A 42-Year-Old Elephant from the Fort Worth Zoo arrived to join longtime resident, Dolly last night.

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.

So if you have friends and family in town over the Holiday's, you just might be able to see the newest addition at the Denver Zoo.
