Zola the elephant, who has fallen pregnant


2007-01-29 - Colchester, United States
It was on January 17 that Colchester Zoo discovered Zola was pregnant after tests were carried out by the German Primate Research Centre in Goettingen. A zoo spokeswoman said: “Keepers at Colchester Zoo were confident that she was indeed pregnant as she had not been in oestrus for some months. “A birth date is not yet known, however from several observed matings keepers at Colchester Zoo expect it to be around February or March 2008.”
