Dallas Elephants Named

Home»Posts»Dallas Elephants Named

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.

There’s also Mlilo (ma-LEE-lo) and Zola, whose names mean fire and quiet, respectively.
