Luk Chai: Taronga's Elephant Calf Turns 5... Months

According to Toronga Zoo keepers, 5-month-old Luk Chai, Australia's first Elephant calf, is on the fast track to adulthood. Not too fast though! Keepers have begun teaching him simple elephant words--indications and directions on where to stand and in which direction to walk--by rewarding the youngster with sweet treats like raisins and apples. While the calf is learing fast, there's still plenty of time for play, as demonstrated by these images from J9Fabre.
