An elephant at a conservancy in Samburu has given birth to twin calves, a very rare occurrence, according to zoologists, who say the last time it happened was in 2006.
Bora from the Winds family gave birth to a male and a female calf over the weekend, according to Save the Elephants, an organization dedicated to ensuring elephants’ future.
The Eagle Eyes Guides and the Elephant Watch Camp were the first to notice the twins’ birth, and they immediately alerted Save the Elephants researchers.
“We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress of these special little pachyderms,” the organisation said on Facebook.
According to the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad, elephant twin births are extremely rare, occurring in only one percent of all elephant births.
Elephants can have four to five babies in their lifetime, and some species of elephants can be pregnant for up to 22 months at a time.
