Zoo, Dublin: 22 reviews and 47 photos

  From news agency
by sourbugger

The first baby elephant born in Ireland came along in May 2007. A rare event anywhere, but it called a real stir here. A competition arrived at the name of 'Asha'. I wanted 'Bertie'.

The whole of Dublin Zoo has been comprehensively redeveloped over the past few years, and the new elephant area is one of it's crowning glories. Whilst the animals now seem to have more room than in the average Tanzanian safari reserve, it does make it a bit more difficult to get a good view of little Asha. I only saw her from quite a distance. Lets hope their success in 2007 leads to more pounding of little feet in the future.

P.S Note to my offspring : asha was walking within 8 minutes - what are you playing around at ?
