AYUTTHAYA -- The Wang Chang Ayutthaya Elephant Kraal in tambon Suan Phrik has a new arrival - a male calf born at 4.40am on Monday.
Romthongsai Meephan, the owner of the kraal, said 30-year-old Phang Dok Sano gave birth to a calf weighing about 70 kilogrammes. The youngster was healthy and strong, with all the dominant features of a male Thai elephant.
The new kraal member was fathered by Phlai Ngathong, a bull from a breeding centre of the Phra Kochabal Foundation.
The mahouts at the kraal named their new member "Phlai Prapphayak."
Mrs Romthongsai said she would register the birth of Phlai Prapphayak with the Provincial Administration Department today.
