Elephant calf 106kg

He was weighed again today after a little hike in the lower paddock with his mum and Aunty Tang Mo, keeping up really well.

The scale showed 106 kg so he's putting on weight nicely.

At first he followed his mum Thong Dee onto the scale platform which is about 10cm high.

Then his mum stood next to the scale and because he's curious about new things he began to rub his trunk on the metal platform to find what it felt like.

Then he just stepped on and weighed himself.

Then he was so happy he didn't want to get off and we had to call him down.
