Anchali The Asian Elephant Born In Berlin Zoo (Video)

Here’s the perfect animal video for this Friday!

Anchali, the Asian Elephant, was born on August 12 at the Berlin Zoo. You can see video of this 350-pound baby here, with his mom Pang Pha, filmed on August 15, just three days after his birth.

This is the fourth child for Pang Pha, whose first three children died after contracting elephant herpes, an incurable viral infection. Noting how healthy Anchali appears, zoo officials are hoping he will live a long life.

I’m sure his mother is too. I wonder what it feels like to be pregnant for almost two years?

The zoo quarters do seem a bit confined; I hope they get to roam further than inside these walls.
