ASHEBORO, N.C. -- The elephants are always a talking point for visitors at the North Carolina Zoo.

The zoo currently has six elephants, two males and four females.

"There has been recent research done that shows that having variable social opportunities and the more elephants they can socialize with, the better," said zookeeper Erin Ivory. "SometimesĀ it takes a little longer to warm up to certain ones and get them working together."
