DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - The newest elephant at the Dallas Zoo has a new name and the name was revealed in lights.
The zoo's new African elephant calf – the first one born in the U.S. in more than two years – is named Ajabu, which means "wonder," "amazing," and "extraordinary."
The zoo says Ajabu now weighs more than 220 pounds, up from 175 when he was born.
He isn't yet on exhibit; he remains in a behind-the-scenes habitat with his mother, Mlilo, and others in the zoo's 10-elephant herd.
No date has been set when he'll make his public debut.
