The Bali Zoo in the Village of Singapadu, Gianyar Regency, welcomed its newest resident on 24 November 2023 with the birth of a “Baby Boy” elephant named Kama.

Weighing in at a healthy 80 kilograms at birth, Kama can stand and suckle milk produced by his mother, Nurhayati.

A member of the critically endangered Sumatra Elephant subspecies (Elephas maximus sumatranus), Kama’s father at The Bali Zoo is 35-year-old Budi, while his mother Nurhayati is 45.

Kama was born on 24 November 2023 at 7:00 a.m. and declared in “good health” by Bali Zoo’s head veterinarian, Drh Arya Sandita. Kama’s health is closely monitored by zoo officials who regularly dose the infant with vitamins and a high-protein diet of soybeans supplemented by an array of tropical fruits.
