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!
