Baby elephant born at Pattaya’s Suan Nongnuch

By The Nation




PATTAYA: -- Famous Pattaya attraction Suan Nongnuch welcome its latest addition on Sunday – a male baby elephant named Plai Nammon.


After park staff had patiently waited and monitored 17-year-old pregnant elephant Pang Ploy for nearly a month, she finally gave birth to the park's 76th elephant at 6.30am. The happy event was recorded on video and a clip posted on Thai social media. 


Plai Nammon –the fourth elephant born at the park in 40 years, was welcomed with a traditional blessing ritual performed by Wat Samakkheebanphot abbot Phra Khru Kasemkittisopon. The name Nammon means holy water.


Pang Ploy had mated with 35-year-old Plai Bird since July 6, 2015, and began to show signs of advanced pregnancy earlier this month.
