You can see an artist reproduction of this nest at the Carlisle Visitor Center in Lagrange.
Five elephants arrived from San Diego Zoo Safari Park in February, 2012.

They weave sticks and fill in the gaps with grasses and moss.
Quite often at Sandy Ridge you’ll see them taking cattails off the tops of muskrat huts.
The exhibit was carefully planned with lots of opportunities for the elephants to use their senses.
Do you see the elephants sticking their trunks into holes in the outer exhibit wall?
The yard is divided into two sections; Keepers shift elephants back and forth according to their care and training schedules.
Sometimes the herd can roam the entire exhibit; at other times elephants are moved to one side or the other while Keepers access the empty yard to refresh browse and treats.
The eagle pair has successfully fledged eaglets almost every year, with the exception of 2009.
That year, after the eaglets hatched, the "mother" eagle was attacked by another female eagle and never returned to the nest (she later died).
