ST. LOUIS -- A big baby is getting a lot of attention in St. Louis. Meet the zoo’s newest addition, a new baby elephant named Priya. The little pachyderm made her big debut Wednesday.

While she may look small compared to mom, she weighs a whopping 310 pounds.

Zoo officials said Priya’s birth is extra-special because Asian elephants are facing extinction.
