Baby elephant, Taronga Zoo, Sydney

Elephants, Taronga Zoo, Sydney

The elephants on display at Taronga Zoo in Sydney are a major attraction, especially with the birth of the baby shown in these photos. The elephants are enjoying their new quarters opened only a year or so ago. This enclosure is much more spacious and elephant friendly than  the old quarters and they obviously enjoy showing off to their admiring audience. One of the benefits of this new enclosure is the excellent viewing areas for the public. Large numbers of people can all view the animals simultaneously.

I remember fondly my earliest encounter with an elephant was in my home state capital city of Adelaide. When I was a child the Adelaide Zoo had several elephants and children were able to ride on them around the zoo. This no longer happens today, so I had to travel to Thailand and Nepal to have a ride on one of these wonderful creatures.
