Baby Elephant

Tuesday 19 August 2014, by Benolaos

Our 2 year old baby does not have a name just yet and will not get her proper name until she is 3 years old. This is a tradition we are following from the owners culture and tradition. At the Elephant camp we have many names for our energetic and crazy baby, but one that sticks is "Sang Noi Kiddu" - Naughty baby Elephant.

Our calf is totally wild and it is so much fun to watch her playing in the camp. When she does something naughty like stealing a shoe, or stealing Baby Khamvongs food, she rushes of to her 13 Surrogate aunties in the herd and can cause so much Elephant conversation it’s fantastic to watch and listen. Mum, Mae Kham Onh is normally just stood somewhere chilling and eating when there is baby commotion.

Sang Noi Kiddu enjoys learning from her Mum how to forage in the local forest but never strays too far away from her Mum.
