Naissance de Tom un éléphanteau asiatique au Pal dans l’Allier

Le parc animalier du Pal est heureux d’annoncer la naissance de Tom, un éléphanteau asiatique. Il est né le 19 mars 2014, pèse 154 kilos et mesure un mètre environ. Sa maman Nina l’a porté pendant 22 mois. Il s’agit de son deuxième bébé après Jade, née également sur Le PAL en mai 2008. Il a fallu toute l’expertise de l’équipe vétérinaire du PAL assistée d’experts vétérinaires allemands, pour mener à bien cette gestation inédite. Explications :

Après la mise bas de Jade, son premier éléphanteau, le 4 mai 2008, Nina a eu de nouvelles gestations, mais qui se sont soldées par la mort du fœtus en novembre 2009 ainsi qu’en novembre 2010. En novembre 2010, le fœtus n’a pas été expulsé, ce qui arrive assez fréquemment chez les éléphants, ceux-ci finissant par expulser le fœtus après plusieurs mois, voire des années.

En mai 2011, après plus d’un an sans saillie, un accouplement s’est produit entre Chang et Nina. Cet accouplement s’est soldé par une gestation, et ce malgré la présence d’un fœtus mort, chose unique jamais observée ni dans la nature ni en milieu zoologique.
L’utérus de l’éléphant présente 2 cornes utérines qui sont indépendantes l’une de l’autre. Dans notre cas, l’une renferme un fœtus mort depuis 2010, et l’autre un bébé vivant depuis mai 2012. C’est une première mondiale.
