The Fort Worth Zoo welcomed a female baby Asian elephant calf on Saturday.
The calf was born at 3:34 a.m. after 22 months of gestation. She weighed 330 pounds and was 38 inches tall. Both she and her mother, 40-year-old Rasha, were reportedly doing well.
The public will be able to help pick her name. Voting is open on the zoo's Facebook page now through July 25.
The choices are Belle, Maggie, Rose, Ruby, Sage and Tujuh.
The zoo said the baby elephant's birth was a major triumph for the endangered species. It is only the second elephant birth at the Fort Worth Zoo in its 104-year history.
She will be viewable once she gets acclimated to her surroundings, the zoo said.
