Date: 18.12.2013

We celebrated on 7 December 2013 the eleventh birthday party of African Elephant bull Kito. Zoo employees of the nutrition and zoology department prepared a birthday (fruit-vegetables) cake for Kito´s enrichment.

When transported from Colchester Zoo  (June 2009) he weighed 2450 kg, now he weighs about 4 550 kilograms. Two females (Umbu-32 years, Sally-31 years) helped Kito with eating the birthday cake :-)
