The first calf was born Breton After 641 days of waiting ... we are very proud to announce the birth of a small Asian elephant at the zoo in Pont-Scorff.
Homaline, a 3-ton elephant and Ant Bwe Lay a beautiful male of 4 tons, had a female of 70 pounds on the night of May 29, 2012 at 4:18.
These animals are part of a breeding program at European level (EEP), such a birth is a rare and valuable zoological environment.
The small will be visible to the public from Saturday, June 16, 2012.
The choice of name will be by vote of the public in the park this weekend. A selection of several names, will be proposed at the éléphanterie.http://www.zoo-pont-scorff.com/les-naissances-au-zoo/

[I believe that 70 pounds should read 70 kilos - a very small calf.]
