Baby elephant finds a way to beat the summer heat

Posted: Updated:
FORT WORTH, T.X. -

A baby elephant at Fort Worth's zoo tried to beat the heat Thursday.  The 330-pound calf took a dip in a kiddie pool. 

She was born last month and is only the second elephant calf born at the Texas zoo.

Her mother is a 40-yr.-old Asian elephant named Rasha and the baby's father is a calf named Groucho.  Officials say both the baby and its mother are in good shape.
