Comments / pictures

This is the first calf which was sired through Artificial insemination with frozen sperm and its father is a wild elephant bull at Phinda Reserve in Africa. Through a novel technique which was developed by a team from Berlin�s Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research the sperm gained in the bush was frozen and successfully thawed.

Vienna zoo says the sperm came from Steve, a wild bull elephant at the Phinda game reserve in South Africa's Kwazulu-Natal province. The baby's mother, Tonga, has been at the zoo in Vienna since 1998.
