Our baby elephant has a name: Letangi
After 22 months of pregnancy, our 7-year old elephant, La-Belle, gave birth to a small calf. The little one was seen nursing from her mother a few hours later but,instead of nursing from her mother, she was seen being nursed by her grandmother who took her under her care
The keepers observed them around the clock. Only on the fourth day, La-Petite allowed La-Belle to nurse her daughter
After receiving hundreds of suggestions through our web site, socal networks, and visitors, we decided to call the little one Letangi, meaning 'thin girl' in Sanskrit. Even though she is an elephant, Letangi was born at 70-80 kilos and not the usual 100 kilos.
