Fortunately for everyone, only 80 years later twin elephants were born again.
Although twin elephants are rarely born, two elephants were recently born at a Sri Lankan shelter.
This is good news for environmentalists and shelter staff alike.
The last twins were born at the center was 80 years ago.
The heroine of the calves is 25-year-old Sarangi. She is a very attentive mother. Fortunately, the calves are healthy, although smaller than the average calf.
This is a great treat for elephant lovers, as the odds of twins being born are about 1% of elephants.
It helps them walk and eat on their own.
Elephants are known to be able to get pregnant a maximum of 4 times in their lifetime.
Wildlife Ambassadors do everything they can to keep this species safe and healthy.
