小编摘要:大象以惊人的记忆力著称,现在,它们又要因为冗长的怀孕周期而出名了,一起来看看吧!

 导读:上周二,亚洲象Azizah于贝德福郡的惠普斯奈德公园产子,创下了英国动物园史上最长的怀孕时间。Azizah怀孕700天,比亚洲象的平均怀孕周期多了84天。而她的宝宝出生时也只有104公斤,也创下惠普斯奈德公园历史上大象体重最轻的记录。

Elephants are notorious for their long memories, but now they will be renowned for their lengthy pregnancies.

Long-suffering Asian elephant Azizah was carrying her baby for 700 days - 84 longer than the average - and finally gave birth at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, Bedfordshire, last Tuesday.

It is believed to be the longest pregnancy ever recorded at the British zoo - nearly two extra months over the normal gestation period of 22 months.

And the baby, at just 16 stone (104kg) at birth, is the smallest in Whipshade's history.

But the clever calf, Azizah's third, soon solved the problem by learning to stand on his tip-toes.

Elephant keeper Lee Sambrook said: 'Azizah took to him straight away and the rest of the herd are so excited to be around the baby and touch it.


'Elephants are social animals and having youngsters joining the herd is what elephant life is about.'

The calf is now venturing out of the elephant barn with the rest of the heard.

And visitors are flocking to the zoo so as to catch a glimpse of him playing with his siblings and suckling his mother, who will not forget the lengthy pregnancy in a hurry.
