Reps for Dublin Zoo say they're delighted to reveal one of their elephants has given birth to a female calf.
Proud mum Bernhardine (Dina) who is the herd's matriarch had been pregnant for 22 months.
The new arrival is Dina’s third calf and the fifth elephant born at Dublin Zoo in less than three years.
Operations manager Gerry Creighton says mum and baby are doing well!
"This is Dina’s third calf and so naturally, she has developed excellent maternal instincts over the years. We are very proud of the expanding herd and recognise the significance of these births for the future of endangered Asian elephants.”
You can see the new arrival at the Kaziranga Forest Trail in the Zoo.
