Comments / pictures

The newborn arrived overnight on Thursday to 35-year-old Thi Hi Way after an Gestation of 25 months. The normal Gestation period for elephants is between 18 and 22 months. Keepers and scientists at the zoo believed that the Pregnancy had failed and Thi had started to naturally reabsorb the foetus after her weight began to return to normal
