Watch A St. Louis Zoo Elephant Celebrate His 29th Birthday in Style
One of the most famous elephants at the St. Louis Zoo is celebrating a big birthday today, and you can watch him celebrate.
Happy 29th Birthday to Raja born on this date back in 1992 and was the first Asian elephant calf born at the Zoo. Raja is one of nine Asian elephants in the Zoo’s multi-generational elephant family and the only male and weighs at a healthy 10,000 pounds.
Raja celebrated with a virtual birthday party put together by his handlers at the zoo. I swear, if I could go back in time I would become a zookeeper so I could work with these majestic animals. I absolutely love elephants and it's a must-stop on my visits to any zoo.
If you happen to visit the zoo anytime soon make sure you give a wave to Raja and wish him a happy birthday.
