Sri Lanka rangers spot possible rare baby elephant twins

Colombo (AFP) – A pair of baby elephants feeding from the same mother have been spotted in a Sri Lankan national park, with officials speculating Wednesday the two could be a rare set of twins.

The young tuskers – who rangers estimate are three to four weeks old – were spotted in the Minneriya sanctuary about 200 kilometres north-east of Colombo, grazing with a herd of about a dozen elephants.
