Elephant learns things in Singapore – level 3

13-06-2016 15:00

This baby elephant doesn’t have a name yet, but she’s full of personality. The first elephant calf to be born in Singapore’s Night Safari in 6 years, she’s been trying to fit in with her new adult world, even if standing up is still a bit of a struggle.

She’s been joining in with her mother, 30-year-old Sri Nandong, with eating adult food and on walks. But her favourite activity is taking a bath in a perfectly sized paddling pool.

The baby elephant will be making her public debut at the end of this month.

Difficult words: paddling pool (a small, shallow pool for walking instead of swimming), debut (the first public appearance of something new).
