TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Tulsa Zoo is "elebrating" this weekend. That's a special celebration all about elephants.

It's your chance to learn about Tulsa's herd and see them getting a fun scrub-down, even a nice bubble bath.

The Zoo has three elephants including Gunda -- at nearly 61 - she's one of the oldest in the entire country.

"We also have some fun educational activities where you can earn your own ears and learn how an elephant uses their trunk and the importance of their feet. So, it's really gonna be a lot of fun here," said Angela Evans of the Tulsa Zoo.

The special demonstrations are this Saturday and Sunday. You can learn more about the zoo's "elebration" on their Facebook or Twitter page.
