Melbourne Zoo’s beautiful baby elephant with mother Dokkoon. The baby doesn’t yet have a name, but the keepers have nicknamed her
“BABY”… and how gorgeous is she!!!
“BABY” Has been named and blessed by Buddhist monks in a special ceremony. Her name is “MALI” which is the Thai word for the Jasmine flower

    Great image,the “Baby” looks georgous and is well framed by its mother.

  • Thanks Hans, yes she is an active and very bright little thing, and fits perfectly underneath her mum. Worth waiting in the queue to get a look!

    Gabrielle Thanks so much, and actually it’s a girl! I think Taronga Zoo’s baby was a boy. Melbourne Zoo’s is a girl.
