The Fresno Chaffee Zoo in central California has welcomed a new African elephant to its herd, officials announced this weekend.

The zoo said Saturday that visitors will be able to see the bull named Mabu on the savannah at its African Adventure exhibit.

Mabu was added to the herd on the recommendation of the African Elephant Species Survival Plan, which is designed to maintain healthy, genetically diverse and stable species within participating zoos.

Curator General Lyn Myers said in a statement that Mabu has sired several elephant calves “and we look forward to seeing how he and our two females interact with each other” in the hope that they will produce offspring.

Mabu joins two female African elephants, a 24-year-old named Nolwazi and her 9-year-old daughter, Amahle, at the zoo’s 13-acre elephant exhibit, the Fresno Bee reported.

Mabu replaces another male elephant, Vus Musi, who was relocated to another participating zoo as part of the Species Survival Plan.
