Pachyderm Pilates


Since Rozie, a pregnant Asian elephant at Albuquerque's ABQ BioPark Zoo, stands a better chance of a healthy birth if she is strong, the "elephant manager" and staff have been putting her through twice-a-day, Pilates-type exercises (featuring leg lifts, squats and other calisthenics). Rozie is due sometime between August and November. Lest anyone worry Rozie is being mistreated, the elephant manager noted in a May press release that her participation "is completely voluntary."
