MEET SAMY

Samy, the first Asian elephant to be born in captivity in Spain, was introduced to the press last week at the Selwo park in Estepona. She weighed 91 kilos when she was born on July 19th but could weigh up to five tonnes when she grows up. Meanwhile, she will feed on her mother’s milk for the next two years, and vegetables will be added to her diet in a few months time. She is only the sixth Asian elephant to be born in captivity in Europe.
