For the first time in Sri Lanka’s history, twin baby elephants have been born at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage.
The twin calves were born to a emale elephant named ‘Surangi’.
Both calves are male. The first calf was born around 4.00am while the second was born around 12.00 noon.
This is also said to be the first twin birth in Sri Lankan history among registered elephants in captivity.
