Jelly the El-infant

This tiny tusker definitely looks a bit wobbly on her legs as she joins mum to take her first steps at Prague Zoo, in the Czech Republic.

The calf - born yesterday (Monday) to her 26-year-old mum Donna - is so new that keepers haven't had a chance to give it a name or even find out if it's a boy or a girl yet.

While her mum kept a close eye on her, the youngster took her first stroll in their enclosure and promptly tripped over.

But you could tell by the way mum Donna wrapped a protective trunk around it, she thought her new baby was just love-ele.

Zoo spokesman Michal Stastny said: "At the moment we just want mum and baby to bond properly so the calf won't be on show properly until the end of March.

"They are both healthy and doing well but we want to make sure of that before we let people see them."

"Donna is a good mother and very protective at the moment so we'll leave them alone for a while.

"We don’t want to upset her or cause her any distress at the moment."

One keeper added: "The calf's a bit unsteady on her feet but that's only to be expected. She's still very young."
