The Asian elephant calf was born Friday.

You can see her sticking close to mom Rose-Tu as the two played in wood shavings.

Zookeepers have picked five names for the previous pachyderm, and the public gets the final vote.

The choices are:

  • Jaidee - which is Thai for good hearted
  • Sirikit - a name for Thai royalty which means glorious
  • Rakhi - which is Sanksrit for love/bond between siblings
  • Lily - following the flower theme of mom's name Rose-Tu
  • Siddhi - Sanskrit for perfection

You can cast your ballot on the Oregon Zoo's website until Sunday evening, https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WX7DPSG.
