On November 30, 2012, asian elephants Rose-Tu and Tusko became proud parents of a beautiful female calf who was to be known as Lily. Weighing about 300 lbs at birth, Lily has captured the hearts and imagination of the city of Portland and around the world. And in the process has become the most famous resident of the Oregon Zoo.
