In June I have been for another afternoon walk in the Diergaarde Blijdorp / Rotterdam Zoo. In the last hours of the day I walked the path past the elephant area and I saw a little one playing near the water. I captured it on video and made a little compilation to share it with you!
The Indian elephant group in the Rotterdam Zoo exists now of seven animals of three generations. Throughout the past thirty-three years, sixteen little Indian elephants have been born already. The first was Bernhardine, born in 1984 and she was the first elephant ever born in a Dutch Zoo. I think – not sure – that this little elephant is ‘Sunay’, son of Timber and Bangka. He is born on 20 August 2015.

The little one of the Indian elephant family in Diergaarde Blijdorp. This little one is gonna be a wise grown-up. The animal that values family, is eager to learn and just appreciates a good lovely sunny day! #elephant #wisdom #animallove #diergaardeblijdorp #indianelephant #rotterdamzoo #loveanimals #lovelymemory #appreciatetheday #afternoonwalk #june #throwback #growingup #splashing #waterfun #springafternoon #zoofriday #fridayafternoon #sophievda
