Happy birthday to our ‘miracle’ calf Pathi Harn! Two years have flown by since we were in awe of when Porntip gave birth to Pathi Harn. The youngster defied the odds and is now thriving!
Taronga’s Asian Elephants awoke to a special treat yesterday morning, as their keepers had put fresh mud in the wallow, and the cooler weather and afternoon showers brought the perfect opportunity to test it out.
It is hard to believe that already two years has passed since Australia’s first elephant calf was born. Today, the 4th of July is Luk Chai’s 2nd birthday!!
This commemorative day takes place every year on 13 March, the aim of the day is to draw attention to one of the most remarkable species on our planet. See how taronga's herd celebrated their national day.
Play was in full swing this morning at the Zoo’s elephant exhibit.
Taronga’s newborn female Asian Elephant calf was officially named ‘Tukta’ today, a Thai name meaning ‘doll’.
The calf is Taronga’s first female and it is the fifth calf born to the Australian Conservation Management Plan for these endangered elephants.
Pak Boon is going very well with her pregnancy. We are now at 652 days of gestation. An elephant’s pregnancy is the longest in the animal kingdom.
A few days ago, young Luk Chai , Taronga’s first elephant calf, was busy adjusting the Elephant exhibit’s fittings to suit himself.
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.
