Asian Elephant in Turtle Back Zoo

A Bronze Sculpture of a Baby Asian Elephant is found in the South East Asian section of Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange New Jersey.

 Native to Southeast Asia, these elephants are highly domesticated and are often found doing heavy work both in forests and urban areas. Although endangered, Asian elephants can still be found in the Wild.

 Turtle Back Zoo doesn't have any real Asian Elephants, but sculptural animals like this do help tell the story of our relationship with animals as well as add fun to a day at the zoo.
