2013-04-26 - Baltimore, United States. Gary S. Hayward, Johns Hopkins University

As a discoverer of elephant endotheliotropic herpes viruses and the developer of diagnostic DNA fingerprint tests used to confirm suspected cases worldwide, I can attest that much of what has been written in the popular press recently about EEHV is wrong or misleading.

2008-03-25 - Baltimore, United States. Joe Burris

No one knows for certain who's the father of the male elephant calf that was born last Wednesday at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, so any name ending in "Jr." is likely out of the question. But what do you call a 290-pound bundle of joy? That's a question posed to officials at the Druid Hill Park zoo. Amid the excitement, no name's been chosen just yet, and zoo spokeswoman Jane Ballentine said yesterday that officials there will decide soon whether to hold a naming contest for the African savann...

Zoo"s mom-to-be draws a stampede, Many opening-weekend visitors behold Felix, an elephant expected to give birth any day

Signs that an elephant is about to go into labor: loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, and a pattern of "lying down, standing up, and lying down," says Colleen Baird of the Maryland Zoo, which is expecting its first elephant birth in its 132-year history any day. Baird, the zoo's assistant elephant manager, says "general agitation" is all she has to go on until Felix's water breaks. And to prepare for that, Baird and her colleagues are keeping a round-the-clock watch, memorizing "elephant birt...

Felix the elephant is having a baby, and the newest addition to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore can't arrive soon enough. With new leadership, a strong base of state funding and reduced ticket prices, the zoo in Druid Hill Park is poised for resurgence. An infusion of corporate dollars would greatly help it along, even with a new pachyderm in the house.

Md. Zoo Elephant To Have Baby

Felix is a 24-year-old African elephant who left her old digs behind before packing her trunk for Maryland. "We knew she was pregnant when she came. She came from a facility in Arkansas. We felt like she would be a good fit here," said Mike McClure. The pregnant pachyderm has packed on the pounds. Elephants gain a ton of weight, literally, when they're expecting. "The only way to tell [Felix is pregnant] is by looking at her two front legs. She has milk and her breasts are swollen. That's t...

Even elephants need to pay attention to grooming now and then. That’s why Dolly and Anna, the African elephants at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, received pedicures last week. “Because they’re so big, their feet are more delicate. They hold so much weight that it’s important to maintain the health of their feet,” said Mike McClure, elephant collection manager at the zoo.
