Well, it wouldn't be Christmas without Santa so at 11:45 pm on Christmas Eve, Galaget gave birth to a baby boy. Of course his name is Plai Santa and that's the best Christmas present anyone could hope for!

Nampheung and her new baby. Nampheung came home from work on the 9th of April and ran straight to the nursery. She was trying to tell us she was ready to go back as she was about to give birth. Two hours later she did just that and gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Now thats a smart ele!

Not to be outdone Kamliphet had a baby boy this morning. Kamliphet gave birth to the Kraal's first baby in February 2000. Since then she has had a baby girl, Kamlithong and now a baby boy. What a great mum!
The Royal Elephant Kraal is committed to breeding as many babies as possible. There have been over 40 successful births since 2000 - with more on the way. In the nursery right now, we have mothers and their babies that you can play with and care for. If you haven't seen a baby elephant you will fall in love when you do. By actually spending time with them you will discover how individual they are. They form their own personalities very quickly and it is fun and fascinating watching them play together whilst their mothers try to keep them in line.
Only with more births than deaths can we ensure the survival of the species.
