For The First Time In 80 Years Twin Rare Elephants Born In Orphanage

Miracles do happen especially in wildlife, which’s what happened in Sri Lanka when a male twin elephant were born to a dad elephant called Pandu and Surangi, a 25-year-old mom elephant at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage.

This incident is the first one that happened in 80 years as the initial one was 1941. However, the 2 baby elephants and their mama are doing great, according to the head of the head of the orphanage Renuka Bandaranaike.

This handout photo from Sri Lanka’s Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage taken on August 31, 2021 shows 25-year-old elephant Surangi with her twin calves born on August 31, 2021 nearly five hours apart, making the first such birth at the facility set up in 1975 to care for destitute elephants, in Pinnawala.

Furthermore, the chance of a women elephant to give birth to a twin is around 1% despite being typically able to give birth around 4– 5 times in a lifetime. What a wonder! Watch the video below.
