A baby elephant scampers to her feet after becoming the first one born in Thailand in 2018.

The female calf - named Yellow Saphire - was born on Tuesday at around 5 am after her 23-year-old mother went into labour in Chonburi, Thailand.

Local Buddhist monks visited the newborn elephant to bless her at a ceremony with the centre’s mahouts and staff.

Kampong Tonsajja, Director of the Nong Nooch Gardens which houses elephants, said: ‘’She is a beautiful girl and the first of the new year. She is the 87th that has been born here. We had a ceremony to name her and bless her.’'
