You may have noticed that Guillermina is a chunky girl; it’s hard not to spot, especially when she’s standing near any of the other elephants. It’s clear that she has quite a bit of weight to lose and, though she’s begun to get a tiny bit smaller, it will be a welcome thing to see her body mass decrease.
Taking into account that most Asian elephants can weigh anywhere between 4,000 – 11,000 pounds (1,800 – 5,000 kg), can you guess Guillermina’s weight? You should take into account that she qualifies as being obese along with being fairly tall when making your prediction. And no making jokes about other people’s theories, please.
(P.S.: We won’t be sharing the other elephants’ weights, because they vary based on height, age, and other factors, and we don’t want people misinterpreting numbers or causing false concern.)
Come back on Tuesday the 5th when we’ll reveal the answer!

Guille, don’t you worry. We love you just as you are (though we are hoping you adopt the slim-fast diet here)
Charlotte Hansen saysJuly 2, 2022 at 2:39 pm
It’s hard to think in thousands of pounds! I’m going to guess 12, 250!

Oh boy how about 13,500 if shes super obese could she possibly have thyroid issues or isn’t that a condition elephants can get? When they were in captivity they didnt get a very balanced healthy diet or much to eat but then again not exercising isnt good either for keeping a trim girly figure its really brutal for humans! 💞🐘💞
Kat Blais saysJuly 2, 2022 at 3:55 pm
it is almost certainly going to be a combination of too much food, too high protein, no exercise, and her eating more food than Pocha since they were fed together. if she were to have problems losing weight, we would look into other causes, but she has already lost some weight.
Pam saysJuly 2, 2022 at 3:14 pm
It’s good to hear you’re seeing a bit of progress in Guille’s fitness level! Every step (literally) takes her in the right direction … Thanks for posting on a holiday weekend!
Terry saysJuly 2, 2022 at 3:41 pm
14,500 pounds of Love!
Holly OBrien saysJuly 2, 2022 at 3:55 pm
7500 kg is my guess???
Elizabeth saysJuly 2, 2022 at 5:14 pm
You can tell when someone doesn’t care how much they weigh when they carry a snack onto the scale. So funny! My guess is 11,000 pounds.
Kat Blais saysJuly 2, 2022 at 5:36 pm
Suzanne Eaton saysJuly 2, 2022 at 5:31 pm

hi carol ❤️
Susy saysJuly 3, 2022 at 10:14 am
Me arriesgo por unos 3500 Kg. Muy buena la propuesta..veremos cuál será el peso de la pequeña Guille
Carmen Dalziel saysJuly 3, 2022 at 10:38 am
Guille’s a tall girl but not as tall as Bambi so I’ll make a guess that she’s 3650 kg (8046 lb) (I wish I could remember Bambi’s rescue weight)
Kat Blais saysJuly 3, 2022 at 10:57 am
bambi was 2875 kg, 6338 lbs about a month after her arrival.
Sandi saysJuly 3, 2022 at 5:17 pm
Couldn’t even guess, but maybe between 8500 – 9000 pounds? She’s so cute though; hope that she can get a little smaller, better for her. Fun to see what she actually weighs. Be careful, she might want to kick the scale once she sees the weight! ha!ha!
Carmen Dalziel saysJuly 4, 2022 at 8:39 am
I was thinking back and thought that Bambi was underweight by about 500 lbs. So no doubt I’ve probably under estimated Guille’s weight by about 500 -1000 lbs haha
Viviana Gallo saysJuly 4, 2022 at 2:59 pm
10.400 libras de puro amor
