So sad news, white rhino Saki (Sakkile) had a stillbirth this week. :-(
Great news, first time mum "Kwanza", an African elephant, gave birth to a cute little calf at 7.30pm this evening. Congratulations! Well done, Kwanza.
The elephant calf which was born on Midsummer /St John´s day last week is a male and is the first African elephant calf in Europe for this year.
The lucky parents are Kwanza (B. Borås, SWE 2001) and Jack (B. Kruger National park, ZAF 1992). Kwanza was also the first elephant to be born i Sweden.
Borås Djurpark has uploaded some pictures of Kwanza and the little calf, on their website with pictures from Hungary.
