The Wait is Over for Hannover Zoo
May 13, 2010
On May 7th at Germany's Hannover Zoo, after 670 days of gestation, proud elephant mother Sayang delivered a baby girl. At 89 centimeters tall, and weighing 106 kilos the calf is a real heart-breaker. For four weeks, zoo keepers and vets kept a round the clock eye on the expectant mother until tests revealed the delivery was imminent. The baby is healthy and happily adjusting to her new surroundings.
