Clover and his mom, Clover, have been bonding backstage and over the course of two months he has nearly doubled his 70 pound birth weight. While he continues to nurse, he has also found some new favorite foods in lettuce, carrots, and sweet potatoes.



When fully grown, Doppler will reach 8-feet-tall, which legs powerful enough to jump as tall as he is.
