First elephant born in Ireland

Say hello to this baby elephant - the first ever to be born in the Republic of Ireland! Dublin Zoo has been trumpeting the arrival of the baby girl elephant who was up and walking just eight minutes after she was born. The baby Asian elephant, which has not yet been named, was born in darkness while zookeepers kept watch by using a special camera. Zoo keeper Leo Oosterweghal said mum Bernhardine and baby are both well.
