A baby African elephant has made her debut at an animal park. Uzuri - which means "Beauty" in Swahili - was born on February 17 at Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent. The calf, weighing an estimated 70-80 kilos, is the third baby for mother Tammi who was brought to Howletts from Tel Aviv in 1988. She has an older sister, Jara, born in April 2005 and a much bigger brother, Jumar, who is now 10-years-old. He was the first African bull elephant to be conceived, born and reared in the UK.
