Jumbo toddler has a birthday kick-about
Tuesday 26 September 2006
Whipsnade’s male elephant calf Euan was two years old on Monday September 25th and his keepers held a jumbo birthday bash for him!
Euan, one of eight Asian elephants in the herd at Whipsnade, is a typical toddler and enjoys football. With this in mind, his kind keepers bought him a giant bright blue gym ball to kick around his paddock. And while no birthday party would be complete without a cake, our catering staff baked the little jumbo a birthday sponge filled with his favourite ingredients.
With this much fun, it’s a birthday this elephant will never forget!
