Budapest Zoo’s newest cutie was up on her feet and walking around with her mother when she was just a week old. As you can see in my pictures, she did have some wobbly moments though when she teetered over and fell on the ground.
Asha, the freshly-minted baby elephant, was introduced to the world and her adoring Budapest fans last week. Sine then she has attracted a steady flow of visitors, families and children to take a photograph of her. Her huge popularity shows little sign of waning either, although the occasional unimpressed kid can be heard saying after a few minutes: “Ok, that’s enough, let’s go see some other animals instead.”
