Two elephant calves born in 2017 at Amersfoort Zoo


Yunha, the female elephant calf born 25 March 2017, is making herself comfortable on the sandy substrate of the 600 m2 indoor elephant enclosure. And she is doing a good job, which you can’t say of the efforts to spray sand on her back – this needs a little practice still. The footage also shows she likes her little playmate, Thabo, who was just two weeks old (born 25.09.2017) when I visited Amersfoort Zoo.
