2009-05-23: not pregnant = mother
Emmen Zoo has confirmed: Ma Yay Yee is pregnant, and the baby is expected ...? Emmen don't do tests so they can't tell, but a caregiver told me a month ago that he thinks she will deliver in May this year.
Ma Yay Yee is the 10 years old daughter of bull Naing Thein (now in Prague) and Htoo Kin Aye who already is granmother of Myo Set Kaung and Yoe Ma. Hopely this time it will be a baby girl.
Father of the expected baby is of course Radza. He has 4.3 descendants, so the next one might be a girl indeed.
