Denver Zoo: Meet Billy, the male elephant who will make his home here later this summer

Look out, lady elephants of North America!

A new hunk is headed your way.

Billy the elephant is scheduled to arrive at the Denver Zoo later this summer. The five-year-old will come from the Antwerpen Zoo in Belgium, where he was called Budi. But Denver already has an elephant named Bodhi -- and though spokesman Sean Andersen-Vie assures us the names are pronounced differently, the zoo has decided to rename their new arrival in memory of zoo supporter William Chenoweth.
