[Zoo News] Yesterday Hogle Zoo announced that 22-year-old Christie the Elephant is pregnant! The proud-mother-to-be showed signs of a "bump" this month, leading the elephant management team to quickly devise a proper workout plan to ensure a smooth gestation period. During her pregnancy, Christie will be "bending, stretching and climbing to help her maintain her weight, as well as the weight of the baby, and ease potential complications during delivery." If all goes well, Christie will deliver a baby elephant in summer 2009. City Weekly has nominated Bill Frost to head Baby Elephant Watch 2008. Stay tuned for exciting new updates.
