Willy, The Big Bull
Willy came to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo from Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. The folks at Disney say he is a laid-back giant who gets along well with other elephants, especially females. He has one tusk, and will certainly be the largest animal ever on exhibit at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. At 11-feet tall at the shoulder and 13,000 pounds, it's easy to see why. He is the first adult male elephant in Cleveland since 1962.
