Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video ▶
The calf's been busy trying to climb the rocks in the paddock. He's mastered getting on top of the logs and now he's trying the rocks which are as tall as him.
We weighed the calf and he's now 116 kilos. So he's putting on around a kilo a day!
The calf's getting more and more independent and is starting to spend time on his own in the top paddock.
He's loving his custom made baby elephant pool, which was cut down from a big plastic tank.
He was weighed again today after a little hike in the lower paddock with his mum and Aunty Tang Mo, keeping up really well.
The calf's already been out exploring both paddocks and it seems his favourite thing to do is play in the dirt.
Our little calf is becoming more adventurous every day and is spending lots of time in the top paddock now.
We weighed the calf again today and he's now 100 kilos. That?s four kilos he's put on in under a week!
The calf, mum and aunty Tang Mo explored the top paddock for the first time with us keepers this morning.
Thong Dee is having a bath, so the calf is having a bath by default too!
