Elephant calf at Taronga Zoo

We weighed Luk Chai this afternoon and he’s now 132 kilos!

The aunts and mum are settling back in to their daily play sessions with us keepers, but Luk Chai likes interrupting and getting in the middle of everything.
Aunty Pak Boon is quite adorable as she can’t concentrate when Luk Chai is around.

During the play session Pak Boon was balancing on a big log with two of her feet in the air. The calf decided to climb the log and watch, and she totally lost her concentration. He then ran off to check what the other aunties were up to.
