Firefighters Give Elephant a Firehose Shower!


During our Winter in July 2014 event Reba, an Asian elephant, received a double firehose shower from the Phoenix Fire Department! Elephants have very thick skin, and the high-pressure water streams from each hose is like a massage for Reba. All of the elephants at the Zoo receive daily showers from their keepers as part of their routine care. Our elephant staff is dedicated to providing the highest care for these amazing animals. Thank you Phoenix Fire Department for coming out to give Reba her annual Winter in July shower!
