Baby Dattaji arrives into our world. What a joy and such a wonderful little guy. Mother, Dad and baby are all doing fine.
The Maetaeng Elephant Park was honoured to welcome Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Syed Sirajuddin Jamalullail – Raja Muda of the Malaysian state of Perlis.
We welcome this one-day old newborn. We do all we can to make this little one’s life as happy as possible.
Everyone in the Park is so excited, as usual, when we have a new birth.
Elephant Art is making a difference in the welfare of the Asian Elephant. All proceeds from the purchase of this artwork, created by the elephants, go directly to the Maetaeng Elephant Clinic, which provides free medical care to all elephants in the region.
Say Hi to OPA-TONE, our new arrival, who entered our world at 07:30 on 11 October. He is absolutely gorgeous, of course. OPA-TONE and mum are doing well.
Elephants usually have 26 teeth: the incisors, known as the tusks, 12 deciduous premolars, and 12 molars.
Unlike most mammals, which grow baby teeth and then replace them with a single permanent set of adult teeth, elephants are polyphyodonts that have cycles of tooth rotation throughout their lives.
When mummy and daddy left, I was a little sad and missed them for a while but I soon cheered up when grandma said we would go to see the elephants at Mae Taeng Elephant Park the following day. The next day we got up very early, for me anyway, and set off for the elephant park. I was very excited.
Under the direction of Associate Professor Dr. Weerapon Thongma the school of Tourism development at Maejo University conducted a survey of the Mataeng Elephant Park to assess their green credentials
