The Dallas Zoo named five of the elephants it received in a controversial move from Africa last month.
Tenadji (ten-DAHJ-ee), the only male in the group, has gained 100 pounds since arriving in North Texas. His name means “Make it Happen.”
Nolwazi (nole-WAH-zee) is the oldest of the group and we’re told it’s rude to discuss her weight. Her name means knowledgeable.
Nolwazi’s daughter, Amahle (a-MAH-lee), is the smallest elephant but we’re told she’s growing fast.
