Baby elephant Jabari has a big role at the Indianapolis Zoo

Jabari stands for 'fearless' or 'brave' in Swahili. This newest member of the Zoo’s African elephant herd also made history as the first elephant in the world (African or Asian) to be born through artificial insemination to a mother who was also born through the same procedure. So now what? Renee Jameson takes us up close and personal with mom and baby to find out what Jabari's role will be at the Indianapolis Zoo. We think his 'job' is to make us smile!
