Animal lovers in Belgium are suffering from a ‘lolifantje fever’ these days. 🙂

The elephant lady May Tagu gave birth to a sweet baby girl on the Christmas day. She got the name Suki which means ‘beloved’. Very suitable indeed!

Kai-Mook is the first elephant born in Belgium and now she has become a mother at the age of 8 years. Today the zoo announced that even Kaim-Mook’s baby is a girl.

On the 15th of January Kai-Mooks baby was introduced to the media and to the visitors. There’s no doubt the baby stole everybody’s heart!

These two sweeties will have lots of fun together!

  1. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the news from the zoo Planckendael. Two baby elephants will have a lot of joy together..

  2. Dear Mervi and Patricia!
    My heart really goes out to the little ones I see here!
    Congratulations to the Planckendael Zoo!

    It is always pure joy to watch baby elephants when everything is alright and they´re doing fine.
    What luck they can grow up together and play with each other under the protection of the adults.

    Thank you for the good news, they are really important and needed precisely in times like these…

    I wish these little sweeties all the best, a happy, healthy and long life!
    May they grow big and strong!


  3. dear Mervi,
    thank you for the good news and the wonderful pictures of the sweet elephants,
    I send very good wishes and all the best to the whole Elephant family
    passt schön auf die Kleinen auf, sie sind ein wertvolles Geschenk
    dear greetings

  4. As I am slow on the uptake I get only now aware there are even TWO baby-elephants in the
    PLANCKENDAEL ZOO, one mother is said to be MAY TAGU and the other mother is KAI MOOK
    (obviously the ‘Darling-elepnat’ of the Belgians. Both the baby’s name is SUKI (!? – that’s what I don’t
    really understand in the report of ZOO PLANCKENDAEL . . . ).

    Whatsoever I wish the two mothers and the two babys a good and healthy time of getting up together
    and a looong live/ long lives with lots of joy and fun and substantial health at any time. GOOD LUCK! to the Planckendael-animals, and -keepeers, and -visitors!

    To PATRICIA ROBERTS I do wish that she will have lots of opportunity to visit those treasures and that her home-treasures will stay in good health as she may be herself!

    Thanks to you, dear MERVI, for having published these reports, pictures, and videos in ‘KWM’.

  5. Dear Mervi and Patricia
    The two little elephants will have great fun together as one
    can see.
    I am sure that Patricia will be going to see them and keep
    us informed in KWM.

  6. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to the babies and their mums.

  7. Vielen Dank, liebe Mervi, für diesen schönen Beitrag. Ich wünsche dem ganzen großen Elefanten-Clan samt der süßen Kleinen alles Gute und viel Gesundheit!
    Herzliche Grüße von

  8. Hallo Mervi

    Es ist schön, dass die Beiden jetzt Spielkameraden sein können.
    Das entlastet in der Zukunft sicher die Mütter. Ich kann mich
    noch gut erinnern, als Kai Mook selbst ein Baby war. Die
    Zeit rast wirklich in den letzten Jahren: ob das daran
    liegt, dass wir immer älter werden ? 😉

    Liebe Grüße
    Chris 🙂

  9. Liebe Mervi,
    gleich 2 süße Elefantenbabys, da würde ich auch Schlange stehen um sie sehen zu können.
    Den Babys und ihren Müttern alles Gute!
    Danke für diese erfreulichen Infos.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  10. Dear Mervi, thank you so much for this article about our two sweet lolifantjes in Planckendael. To be honest, I saw right from the start that it was a SHE. But in an effort to avoid that people may consider me as a kind of lunatic or whatever kind of obsessed fool, I wrote nothing about the gender. I can only invite you to see the video’s again and then you will see exactly the same as me. Due to her weight, the keepers thought that it was a boy, but no, only a pretty roundish girl. And OH YES, as soon as my health is allowing me, I will visit them.
    By the way, Chang, the father of these babies is now in Copenhagen Zoo.

  11. Liebe Mervi, liebe Patricia,

    danke fürs Einstellen der zuckersüßen Fotos vom Elefantennachwuchs.

    Die beiden Minirüssel sind noch so winzig, aber sie werden bestimmt viel Spaß in der gemeinsamen Zukunft haben.
    Da war ja mächtig was los. Gut zu sehen auf dem Video. Eine lange Warteschlange wie zu Knuts Zeiten. Auch die Medien waren zahlreich vertreten.

    Ich wünsche den beiden Minirüsseln und ihren Müttern alles Gute für die Zukunft. Mögen die beiden Kids gesund bleiben.

    Liebe Grüße

  12. Liebe Mervi,

    die beiden Mini-Lolifanten sind allerliebst und es ist schön, dass sie einander als
    Spielgefährten haben.
    Mögen sie sicher und gesund aufwachsen.
    Patricia, hoffentlich kannst du sie bald besuchen.

    Liebe Grüße
