It's a girl!

Peekaboo! The newest member of Hagenbeck's elephant herd, a little girl born last Friday, as yet unnamed.

She was four days old when the photos were taken.

I think that she's already very adept at using her trunk.

Hi
Namaste & Greetings from Coimbatore, India.I chanced to read your blog and saw the astounding awesome amazing unbelievable photographs of the baby elephant. Every birth is a great miracle of nature
Looks like an Asian elephant brought into Germany. Am I right?
Please feel free to read my blog & comment.
