Up-date On Mali...

Life's a ball for Mali, our baby elephant who turned six months old on Friday.

The milestone was celebrated at the Melbourne Zoo, where Mali has been one
of the most popular attractions since she was born.

Now tipping the scales at 335kg. Mali has almost tripled her birth weight of 111kg.

She has 4 teeth - two on the top and two on the bottom. She uses those teeth to chomp
on her favorite foods including dates, watermelon and bananas.

Zoo keepers say one of her favorite things to do is push logs around her enclosure,
just like the adult elephants she lives with.
