First Native Born Australian Elephant

SYDNEY'S Taronga Zoo has welcomed the first elephant calf to be born in Australia.

The male calf was born to Asian elephant Thong Dee at about 3.08am (AEST) in the zoo's Elephant Barn this morning.

After a three hour labour, Thong Dee, who was a street elephant in Bangkok, was surprised by the calf and took time to calm down after the birth.

She greeted her new baby by touching his trunk.
