The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is preparing to celebrate the birthday of one of its oldest…and largest residents.
"This summer marks a milestone for one of the most beloved family members at the zoo. Siri, the matriarch of our elephant herd, will turn 50 years old this year.”
Zoo Director Ted Fox says Siri was first brought to the zoo in 1972 when she was 5, and is still one of the zoo’s biggest attractions. He says the 9,000 pound pachyderm has thrilled generations of visitors.
