It's a boy!

We have a new member to the "aane" family at the Theppakadu elephant camp. He's only 24 days old. When the forest department had rescued him at Coonoor he was around 10 days old. The story goes that he was stuck in a ravine and his mom died while trying to save him. The mahout who's looking after him hasn't given him a name yet; they'll wait for him to turn one. Right now he's in good hands with the mahout and his family and Dr. Kalaivanan (our resident wildlife vet) to look after him. Let's hope for the best for this little one!
