It was a busy week at the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park with the birth of a Proboscis monkey and a Borneo Pygmy elephant. The monkey was born on Wednesday and the elephant on Friday. The two births were also a milestone for the park as it was the first time in the world that a pygmy elephant had been born in captivity and the second time for a Proboscis monkey. Both newborns are in good health with staff keeping an eye on them round the clock for the next two weeks.
