All play in the paddock

All play in the paddock

 The female calf spent more time in the paddock with the rest

of the herd today. The other calves, Luk Chai and Pathi Harn, seem to be more

interested with her and Luk chai was seen looping his trunk around hers. As the

calf is still only a couple of days old she can be seen close by her protective

mother Pak Boon.  

With an overcast morning, both Luk Chai and Pathi Harn took

to the water for a roll and tumble. The male calves were seen splashing and

scrambling all over each other, with the elder male calf, Luk Chai, seeming to

hold the upper hand. - Zoo Communications
