There's been ANOTHER new arrival at Dublin Zoo

There's a been another new arrival at Dublin Zoo - a new elephant calf.

We've already had one elephant calf born this summer as well as an Asian lion cub and the babies just keep on coming.

The male Asian elephant calf was born to mother Anak at 6.24am last Tuesday. The as-yet unnamed baby boy weighed in at 70kg.

Here he is being ADORABLE with his cousin.

The new calf will join the herd with mum Anak and Dad Upali, Bernhardine, Asha, Yasmin and her new calf in the Kaziranga Forest Trail.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Christy Burke was at Dublin Zoo this morning to announce October 2014 as the 'Month of the Elephant' to celebrate the new arrivals.

Dublin Zoo said it will be an "elephantastic" month (nice one) with family fun days, events, workshops and keeper talks all around Dublin city and at the Zoo.

The Natural Confectionary Company will be announcing details of the second naming competition on their Facebook page so get thinking of names!
