This Baby Elephant Is Only 33 Hours Old!

May 8 2008 - 12:45pm


We've had a crazy week of pachyderm [1] births from the hippos [2] to rhinos [3] to this lil fella. Check out the yet-unnamed male newborn elephant at a zoo in Hanover, Germany . . . umm, seriously, what's in the water at the zoos in this country? [4] Khaing Hnin Hnin delivered this baby on May 7 and he's only 33 hours old at the time of these photos! The mommy actually gave birth au natural – without the help of zookeepers – and already seems comfy watching over her new one and helping him eat. Soooo cute. See them close up when you .
