S.B. Zoo Hosts “Spa Day” for Two Elephants Celebrating Major Milestones

This week, the S.B. Zoo (500 Niños Dr.) will host Forty, Fit, and Fabulous: Asian Elephants’ Day at the Spa in honor of Little Mac and Sujatha, two of the zoo’s pretty pachyderms. The pair will both be celebrating their 40th birthdays, as well as a recent collective loss of over 3,600 pounds! Visitors are invited to watch as the elephants are pampered with pedicures and grooming, then enjoy jumbo-sized birthday cakes, and much more. The affair runs from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, February 26, and is free with zoo admission ($10-$12). Call 962-5339 for more info.
