Denver Zoo's New Asian Elephant, Kimbo, Can Now Be Seen By Zoo Visitors [VIDEO]

Ahh, just in time for Valentine's weekend! Denver Zoo's new Asian elephant, Kimbo, can now be seen by zoo visitors.

Kimbo, a 42-year-old female, arrived from Fort Worth Zoo in December and spent the last couple months getting acquainted with her new state-of-the-art indoor quarters while she cleared a mandatory quarantine process.

Zookeepers describe Kimbo as a little bit shy and cautious, but say she is becoming more comfortable with her new sounds, smells and opportunities. The first new female elephant to move into the exhibit, she is just now getting to know longtime zoo resident elephant Dolly as a herd mate. The two are getting along well and will provide each other excellent company long-term.
