Crowd favorite at Houston Zoo suffers big loss
HOUSTON, TX – Houston Zoo favorite Tess, an Asian elephant, has miscarried two-calves leaving the zoo staff devastated.
Elephants rarely successfully deliver twins, in fact doctors only know of a few times it’s ever happened.
Tess was about half way through the 22-month pregnancy, zookeepers were under the impression she was carrying only one calf.
Tess has drawn crowds this summer for her love of yoga.
NewsFix was recently hanging with Tess during one of her mellow afternoons and even then, her caretakers were worried about the pregnancy.
