Amazing animal-Elephant gives birth after two year pregnancy

Elephant gives birth after a two year pregnancy - the longest ever recorded at a British zoo.Link
Elephants are notorious for their long memories, but now they will be renowned for their lengthy pregnancies. Long-suffering Asian elephant Azizah was carrying her baby for 700 days - 84 longer than the average - and finally gave birth at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, Bedfordshire.

It is believed to be the longest pregnancy ever recorded at the British zoo - nearly two extra months over the normal gestation period of 22 months. And the baby, at just 16 stone (104kg) at birth, is the smallest in Whipshade's history.
