A set of extremely rare twin male elephants have been born in Thailand, both are alive and well.
A crowd of onlookers cheered as the elephants were born. Twin elephants are a very rare occurance and have a very low survival rate, it is thought that these could be the first male twin elephants in the world to have survived birth.
Thong-Kum and Thong-Tang, believed to be the world's first set of male twins, are just two-weeks old and are reported to be in a healthy condition. One onlooker had travelled from a local town just to see the rare phenomenon. "I can't believe there are twin elephants, I have heard they are so rare," she said.
