There will be many tears

Houston lost one of its cutest residents today.

Mac the baby elephant died last night from a viral infection. He took ill yesterday. He was only 2 years old. I haven't told the kids yet. They will be so sad. He was always our most entertaining stop at the zoo.

You can read the full story about Mac here.

That's so sad. That little baby was cute. Hope your kids are coping well(when you tell them the news)

As expected, the girl took it much harder than the boy. She sobbed. I sobbed with her. He was like a little puppy. Very playful and as cute as could be. One of the female elephants is pregnant though. That is a bright spot. I believe elephants can be pregnant for 2 years, so it could be awhile before we have a new baby.
