The Elephant in the Womb

70 Kilogram Baby Female Elephant Born at Elephant Safari Park March 15, 2009.


Julius Caesar was warned "Beware the ides of March" - foreshadowing the date of his untimely death of March 15th. Another warning with "Caesarian undertones" might also have been issued to Fatimah, a female elephant in Bali, who gave birth to a 70 kilogram progeny on March 15th at the Taro Elephant Safari Park.

Fortunately, nature took a smooth course eliminating the need for any surgical assistance named after ancient Roman rulers as Bali's Elephant Safari Park near Ubud, welcomed the arrival of a bouncing baby girl on Sunday, March 15, 2009. Weighing 70 kilograms and measuring 110 centimeters in length and 80 centimeters in height, the Sumatran elephant was born "naturally" without the intervention of a veterinarian. This was probably all as well, given the fact that the baby probably weighed more than the delivery doctor.

The first birth among the captive elephant population of the Elephant Safari Park, the baby girl elephant, named Jegeg is shown on, is the daughter of Father Seng Wong and Mother Fatimah. The latest addition brings the population of elephants at the Park managed by Australian Nigel Mason and his wife Yanni to 28 animals.

Fatimah's gestation period stretched nearly 19 months, dating from her conception in July 2007.

A regular supply of Mother's milk is being supplemented by a special diet for Fatimah that includes 250 kilograms of grass and elephant stems, 5 kilograms of high-protein peanuts and handfuls of multi-vitamins.

Nigel, by the way, where's my cigar?
