Born early Monday morning, the yet-unnamed calf was filmed today by officials from the Safari Park, as his mother keeps a watchful eye on the newborn.

The mother Umngani (which means "friend" in Swazi, the native language spoken in South Africa by the Swazi people), arrived in the United States in 2003, due to drought circumstances in her original home of Swaziland. Faced with a challenge of potential death by drought, Swaziland's officials announced two options: adoption by a zoo, or culling the nations elephant herd. The area where the elephant herd was living is home to some grandly historic human history, including prehistoric rock art by early human ancestors dating back to 25,000 B.C.
