Baby Elephant Found

A newly born male elephant has been found in the Moscow Zoo -- to the great surprise of elephant supervisor Sergei Astrakhansev since no one knew its mother was pregnant.

"Nobody had noticed any change in the mother's size because an elephant pregnancy lasts two years," zoo spokeswoman Natalya Istratova explained Thursday.

The baby was reported healthy, although its father was taken away due to fears that it might trample its offspring.
