Melbourne Zoo 1:10am Saturday 16th January 2010
a little joy came into the world.
Dokkoon delivered a healthy baby early today giving Melbourne Zoo its first baby elephant. She is only the second elephant born in Australia, and entered the world safely at 1.10am after keeping Melbourne waiting on tenterhooks for more than a week.
In the wild, most elephants are born at night, which allows their eyes time to adjust and get their legs moving so they can join the herd the next day…more
here is a little piece of music just for the new baby.
