Comments / pictures

2018-05-28: "Paru from the PA family has given birth to twins, Norah and Katito, male and female," Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) confirmed the good news in a Facebook post.

2018-10-22: We are very sorry to have to report that one of the twin elephants born to Paru in Amboseli died. The female calf was the smaller of the two and at an early stage had sustained an injury to her back which seemed to heal. The vet had looked at it and decided against treating it because there was no obvious distress and no infection. Darting a Lactating female is very high risk to both the mother and her milk-dependent calves so for the sake of keeping Paru and her calves in good health the decision was made not to intervene. We kept a close eye on the twins and it seemed she got better on her own; we therefore cannot say for sure that this was the cause of death. She died a natural death, something that almost every elephant mother in the wild has endured at some point in her life.
