Dublin Zoo is celebrating the birth of a female Asian elephant calf. Proud mum Bernhardine (Dina) who is the herd’s matriarch, gave birth to the healthy calf on Monday night after a 22-month gestation period. The calf is estimated to be 1 metre tall and weighs approx. 80kg. The new arrival is Dina’s third calf and the fifth elephant calf born at Dublin Zoo in less than three years.
