Child star

Hi everyone. I live at the Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo (ลานแสดงช้างและฟาร์มจระเข้สามพราน). I'm only a kid, but I'm the star. (Photos by Bangkok Post photographer Patipat Janthong.)

Everyone who comes here wants to see me.

Meeting so many people every day is hard work and, after a while, I get sleepy. I have to lay down and take a nap.

That's better.

Hi again. I'm back and I'm wide-awake. It's time to play "Who's the cutest animal in the whole world?"

Do you know the answer? It's me!!!!
