Dublin Zoo is thrilled to announce the birth of a male Asian elephant calf. Proud mum Yasmin gave birth to the healthy calf on Monday afternoon after a 22-month gestation period. The calf is estimated to be 1 metre tall and weighs approximately 130kg.
This new arrival is Yasmin’s fourth calf and the sixth elephant calf born at Dublin Zoo in less than three years.
…Dublin Zoo is inviting the public to suggest a name for the new arrival based on his Asian origin. Name suggestions can be submitted at Dublin Zoo.
