DUBLIN ZOO HAS welcomed a new baby elephant, just weeks after another calf was born there. The male youngster – who is yet to be named – joined the rest of the herd at 6.24am on Tuesday. He’ll already have a playmate in the other calf, who arrived in the world last month to a different mother. Look at the lads there, having the craic.

Paul O’Donoghue, the zoo’s assistant director, said:

The calf is doing well and is being watched carefully by his mum Anak and the rest of the herd. As a first time mother, Anak has bonded very well with the calf, with the help of the family unit.
