But they’ve been putting the pregnant elephant in a secluded area at night just in case.And sure enough, when they came to work Thursday morning, the new calf was waiting for them. Security camera footage confirmed that the baby elephant came into the world at 11:20 p.m. Wednesday, and at 281 pounds, she’s the biggest ever born at the park.Umngani “has given birth three other times, and those calves arrived late, so when we checked on her first thing thismorning, we were surprised and thrilled to see her caring for her healthy newborn,” said Curtis Lehman, animal care supervisor at the park.“Umngani is a great mom, and she and the baby are doing very well,” Lehman said.The unnamed calf began nursing shortly after it was born, according to the zoo.The Safari Park is home to 14 elephants — four adults and 10 younger ones, according to the zoo.Anyone interested in catching a glimpse of the new elephant can check out the park’s elephant webcam at sdzsafaripark.org/elephant-cam.
