We watched Thong Dee have her first proper nap lying down last night. It was beautiful. The calf lay between her front legs with Tang Mo just next door.
When Thong Dee began to get up, she was a little bit slow so Tang Mo came over and helped her up with her trunk.
Tang Mo was the duty parent, getting up and down several times in the night to check on how the calf was doing.
