Elephant Update
Friday 3rd September 2010

With the weather getting warmer, both the elephant calves have been going into the pool more often. They’re playing really well together and Pathi Harn tries to clamber onto Luk Chai’s back. It’s just as well that Luk Chai’s trunk functions well as a snorkel.

Some of the bigger girls have also been water-friendly this week. Luk Chai stays in the pool to play, but Pathi Harn’s not ready for that yet so he pops out.

Everything’s going really well with the whole herd. The boys are eating well and both are putting on weight – Luk Chai weighed in at 538 kg this week and the younger Pathi Harn now weighs 318 kg. They’re going great.
