Elephant born at Lowry Park Zoo

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Lowry Park Zoo is celebrating a new addition: an elephant calf was born there last week.

The zoo released photos of the baby elephant that they said were taken in the first days after her birth on July 29.

She does not have a name yet, the zoo said. She was born to an elephant named "Matjeka" after a 21-month gestation period. Matjeka is 21 years old, and weighs 7,600 pounds.

The baby elephant is the third one to born at Lowry Park Zoo. Her arrival follows the birth of another elephant calf just seven months ago.
