A rare Asian elephant has been born at Chester Zoo, with the birth captured on CCTV.
The female calf arrived to 12-year-old mum Sundara after a 22-month gestation and was on her feet within minutes.
Richard Fraser, assistant team manager of elephants at Chester Zoo, described the birth as "perfect" and a "great family occasion."
Asian elephants are listed as endangered on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's red list, threatened by habitat loss, poaching, disease and direct conflict with humans. The new calf is a huge boost to the endangered species breeding programme.
