Camera Critters is hosted every Saturday by the lovely Misty.
If you are a critter lover, you must visit!
In early May, Mr. Dragon and I went to the Houston Zoo for the elephant open house.
Star of the show, was the one month old, Baylor.
Baylor was named for the Baylor College of Medicine where researchers are investigating the elephant herpes virus. Asian elephants are threatened, not only in captivity by the herpes virus, but also in the wild. The research that Baylor is doing is very important for the species.
Baylor with his Mom, Shanti.
Baylor has no fear. He runs right in the middle of the other elephants.
He's a busy little guy.
We took oodles of photos of this little guy.
I put the camera on sport mode and just let the camera go!
I'm sure you'll be seeing more of him in the future.
