Packed trunk

2009-10-20 - Nyiregyhaza, Hungary

Orphaned elephant calf Jumanee may soon be packing his trunk as zoo bosses try to find him an adoptive mum. The heartbroken youngster lost his mum in August when she died of cancer and stood guard over the spot where her body fell for days trumpeting plaintively.

Accepting a substitute mum is not easy, but we hope, it will help the el...

German drug maker saves baby elephant in NE Hungary

2007-10-05 - Budapest, Hungary

The baby was the first African elephant born in Hungary, on September 4.

Employment Prospects Bleak for Cute New Elefant

2007-09-05 - Budapest, Hungary

You may have read over on Caboodle that Hungarys first ever African elephant was born in captivity at Nyregyhza Zoo yesterday. However, reading about it is nothing compared to seeing the supercute MTI snaps (the one above with a not-so-cute handler) via the supercute Cukisg, Indexs blog dedicated to all things that make you want to go Awwww. However, when the baby bulls time comes to pack his trunk, government tightening of the animal labor market may leave him jobless.

Mammoth fossils discovered in Southern Hungary

2006-08-09 - Budapest, Hungary

A fossilized mammoth skull, including a meter-and-a-half section of a tusk and several teeth, was discovered in Zok, a village near the city of Pecs in South Hungary, a spokesman for Pecs University said on Wednesday. Initial digs suggested that the mammoth had been hunted and killed by humans, which makes the find even more interesting. Mammoth fossils were last found in July, when a calf and an adult were unearthed at the shore of Lake Balaton in W Hungary, while constructing a road.
