Elephants at Dublin Zoo

Elephants at Dublin Zoo

We could be hearing for the first time in history, the newborn cries & the 'not so gentle pitter patter' of tiny elephant feet at Dublin Zoo. It is hopeful that  all four female elephants in the herd are pregnant & will give birth over the coming months. On the line to John is Gerry Creighton, Dublin Zoo.

A book 'Dublin Zoo Elephants' written by Catherine de Courcy &illustrated by Cathy Callan was launched yesterday - a great christmas present for young readers.
