Here one of the twins is lying near the mothers left foot, the second is just to the left partially obscured by the grass

In order not to disturb the elephants and the danger of detection, it was not possible to get closer or take pictures from a different angle.

These pictures where taken by one of the park rangers with one of my cameras.

As both twins are still red but are able to walk and considering the mothers condition, they should be 4-6 days old at the time of the picture

Here the back of both are visible, they are next to each other just to the left of the mother.

Elephant twins are extremely rare, so this was a very special moment to see twins for the first time.
