Record-breaking 5 Elephants Born in One Year!

It's a world record! On December 9, 2010, at 3:30am, Hannover Adventure Zoo welcomed its 5th Baby Elephant birth this year. According to the zoo, never before have five baby Asian Elephants been born in a zoo within a calendar year! "The tiny Elephant girl is doing well, as is mother Khaing Hnin Hnin, who gave birth to her fourth child unassisted by the zoo staff and without any complications at all. We are all extremely happy" said zoo director Klaus-Michael Machens. Mother and daughter will now be resting behind the scenes for a few days, getting to know each other as well as the rest of the Elephant family.
