Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video ▶
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!
This morning we took the calf out for another walk in the lower paddock.
When the sun came out after lunch we went for another walk to the Lower Paddock.
We took them outside for a walk just now and the adventurous calf ran towards to Aunty Porntip who accidentally bumped the little fellow, making him fall over.
Thong Dee had her first long sleep since the baby’s arrival last night. Tang Mo played baby watcher as Thong Dee slept for five hours straight.
He just went for a short walk with all the aunties this morning in the lower paddock.
