Elmo was found orphaned when he was only a few days old and raised without littermates. He became imprinted and could not be released.

He came to WILDES in 2008 and is a loveable and lively ambassador for his species.

Here's what Nancy had to say about him "I did THREE ed programs yesterday! I took Elmo. He is quite entertaining... He pooped, spilled his water grabbed a name tag off the table next to him, tipped over a basket of crayons and proceeded to eat a bright red one, AND exposed himself!!!(the teacher and I noticed but luckily the kids did not!)"
