Pang Toi Ting gave birth successfully to a girl on 25 June, our 55th (successful birth since 2000) bundle of joy! She came from Pattaya to have her baby here. The jumbo event happened at 4:30am. Toiting is not a sociable elephant but she seems to be taking to motherhood very well. The baby has been named Pang Pailin which is a sapphire.
Birth No. 54 – 13 March 2013
It is with great pleasure we can announce that on Thai National Elephant day we had our 54th successful birth. Pang Doksanu gave birth at 11:22pm to a very active baby Girl. From just a few minutes after she was born & a couple of wobbly stumbles she was on her feet & walking then running all over the place. Then out of the darkness came another Elephant, Pang Nongair had got off her chain & came over to see if she could help out. She stayed with Doksanu & her baby offering some support. Staff assisted by tying a pakama around the baby’s waist and he and Pi Om guided the baby followed by mum to a makeshift pen near the sala. I think Nook is going to have her hands full with this one. Her name is Pang WanChangThai. which literally means Thai Elephant Day
