Over the last couple of days during morning bath times, we get out the baby pool for Pathi Harn. He doesn't get all the way in yet, but puts first one foot and then another into the water. He likes to swish it around with his trunk. We've brought Luk Chai into the barn to show Pathi Harn how much fun he can have in the bath. Luk Chai loves his bath.
‘Tiquie’ our Brazilian Tapir, the usually timid creatures of South American rainforests has stolen our hearts with her endearing and affectionate personality.
Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, Frank Sartor, today announced that Taronga’s new elephant calf will be named Pathi Harn (pronounced ‘par tea harn’).
Porntip and Pak Boon took a walk around the elephant paddock this morning with us Keepers. We were quite surprised as the calf decided to be the leader, rather than following alongside mum. He was right out in front of them and was pretty confident.
We’re trying to encourage people to eat seafood that is caught in a sustainable manner.
The young calf has been busy playing with Luk Chai in the top paddock. They push each other about and have a playful wrestle.
The calf, mother Porntip and Pak Boon just went for a dip in the bottom paddock’s shallow pool. The little calf walked right in and was excited to be shoulder deep in water.
For the first time yesterday the new calf got to properly meet the other two aunts and eight month old Luk Chai. The six of them hung out in the paddock together and Luk Chai was very excited and interested.
Taronga’s new elephant calf began to explore the elephant exhibit today with his mother, Porntip, just days after surviving a difficult birth.
Today the calf got to spend a few hours with his mother’s closest elephant friend Pak Boon. Pak Boon is very curious about the calf. She follows him about and watches him closely. Every now and then she touches him gently with her trunk.
