Photograh titled 'Whipsnade's latest - beautiful babies from Africa'. Caption on the back reads: 'Trumpeters, what are you sounding now? It's a welcome call to visitors to Whipsnade Zoo, Bedfordshire, from Katie (left) and Susie, to babie African elephants, as they make their debut there together. They were flown to England from Zambia this week. Both are six to seven months old. Katie weighs 420 lb approximately and Susie about 400 lb. They were named in Africa and already answer to their names. Whipsnade's other baby elephant, Kumera, has already made overtures of friendship to the two new arrivals'.
