On Monday July 17th, Puiji gave birth to her calf at Shedd Aquarium. Michelle was in California at the time and unfortunately missed it. However, baby and mother are doing fine.
On the 1 month birthday of the calf, the Aquarium invited Staff & Volunteers to see them and these photos were from that night.
While the calf does not have a name yet (Shedd Aquarium will be holding a naming contest soon) they have had plenty of time to bond and are currently not on exhibit to the public. So, this made it a little more special.
