Pictures by Random Irish Photos today of the second Asian elephant calf born at Dublin Zoo this year.

The healthy unnamed male calf was born to mother Anak at 6.24am on Tuesday weighing in at 70kg.

He will join the rest of the herd – Bernhardine, Asha, Yasmin and her new calf which was born last month, mum Anak and Dad Upali in the Kaziranga Forest Trail at Dublin Zoo which is sponsored by The Natural Confectionery Company.
