Meet Chawang, the Asian elephant that has been chosen as the new icon of the Night Safari.
The animal, which was rescued in Malaysia and is almost 40 years old, has been a favourite at the park since it opened in 1994 and was yesterday picked to serve as ambassador for its species, which is listed as endangered.
Chawang has successfully sired five elephants, including the park’s latest addition, Neha.
