The third offspring of Begümcan and Winner, one of the residents of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Natural Life Park, were born.
Thus, the number of Asian elephants shown on the endangered species list increased to 5 in İzmir.
25-year-old Begümcan gave birth to a healthy 110 kg baby after nearly 2 years of pregnancy. Begümcan and Winner have two more offspring named İzmir and Deniz.
Şahin Afşin, İzmir Natural Life Park Manager, said, “Our baby is healthy and very active. The mother, Begümcan, is also in good health. It will be taken to the area after being cared for inside for a while. Then the visitors will be able to see the baby.”
