For the sea lion, rabbit & toad Haddonfield held a vote to choose which animal would come to our town. The sea lion won. However, the late Eric Berg was kind enough to send us 2 more sculptures to help create our Children’s Sculpture Zoo.
The giraffe “Tumi” was donated by a Haddonfield resident and was likely made in the 1970s in Vietnam. Tumi is 1,1000 pounds and stands over 15 feet tall!
Our baby life-size elephant named “Ndotto” which is modeled after a real-life orphaned baby elephant found in Kenya in 2014. The real-life elephant was rescued by local tribesmen, rehabilitated at the world-renowned Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. You can see videos here > www.SheldrickWildlifeTrust.org/orphans/ndotto
Our friend and guardian of the zoo is “Murph” the Gorilla. Murph keeps a watchful eye on all the fun things happening in our zoo! Murph’s origins are unknown, but he is right at home in our Children’s Sculpture Zoo and looking forward to joining you when you visit!
