    All three African elephant cows are pregnant.

    "Bibi"is due in September, it will be her fourth calf, two were born at Tierpark Berlin, the third in 2013 at Halle, but she killed it immediately after the birth.

    Her daughter"Panya", 7 Years old, is, of course, a first time mother and due in Sommer 2016, and"Tana"in July 2016

    Father is"Abu", born at Vienna, who has killed a keeper in the age of nearly five.

    It should also be noted that all three elephant cows have given birth.

    Bibi's calf was again sadly killed by herself. However both Panya and Tana have had successful calves, Tana had a female named Tamika, and Panya a male named Ayo.

    Do you think they will breed Bibi again and try to separate the calf immediately or put her on contraceptives longterm?

    It is our understanding she is to be bred by the bull before leaving for Magdeburg.
