First Family Watch: Elephant named "Barack"

what a tiny trunk

A baby male elephant born on the eve of the inaugration was named Barack. A surprising political upset for the GOP!

The elephant weighs 250 lbs, and is the 22nd birth for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation. He is also only the fourth elephant to be born through artificial insemination in the U.S.

Visit the Center for Elephant Conservation and your kid can write an email greeting to the baby elephant.
