Jumbo sur­prise at zoo

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

VIS­I­TORS to Dublin Zoo en­joyed a mam­moth treat yes­ter­day when its new­est ad­di­tion was un­veiled.

Asian ele­phant Anaka was born on Satur­day to proud mum Anak and weighed in at 90kg.

The zoo’s Gerry Creighton said:

“We are de­lighted to wel­come our new ar­rival and happy to re­port the calf is healthy, strong and was stand­ing within min­utes of his birth.”

And Dublin wasn’t the only zoo wel­com­ing new ad­di­tions, with a cheeky pri­mate get­ting in on the act

in Belfast. Fran­cois lan­gur mon­key Huaidan was born late last year but took a Valen­tine’s Day bow.

His name means ras­cal in Chi­nese and the zoo hopes he will prove a big draw to those hop­ing for some mon­key busi­ness in 2018.

TWO adorable new ba­bies were born in Dublin and Belfast zoos re­cently.

The cute lit­tle lan­gur mon­key and baby ele­phant are the main at­trac­tion for vis­i­tors to the pop­u­lar fa­cil­i­ties.

Zoo have to see them to be­lieve it.
