Thong Dee’s little calf has a name! We’ve named him “Luk Chai”.

After going through over 30,000 entires that you all put forward in the naming competition, us keepers decided to go with “Luk Chai”. It’s pronounced Look- Chai.
We liked this name as it reflects his Thai heritage and means “my son”. A word that sounds similar to Chai also means triumph and our boisterous and inquisitive boy certainly is a triumph for the conservation breeding program.
