For about 20 Months, Pori was pregnant with her child. Then finally it happened - it was a boy, 117 kilograms and 91 centimetres! When the little bull elephant Kando was born in 2007 at Tierpark Berlin, not only his mother Pori was wide-eyed . Only a few minutes after he had been born, the baby elephant tramped over into an open area pool - and then went for a swim. Later it was named Kando, which in Swahili means "shore."
Since 1999, 15 baby elephants have been born at the Tierpark Berlin.This is a record. And not only that, the zoo also happens to be the largest zoo in Europe. Covering an area of 160 hectares, there are about 7800 animals in total and there are nearly 900 different species – all the way from sunbears to the Indian giant flying fox. In addition to the Hummingbird-Crocodile House, the Tropical Hall, Afrikanum and the Snake Farm, the Vari Forest is of particular interest. There, visitors can stroll through the forest full of black and red varis and have a close-up look at the curious lemurs.
Tierpark Berlin was founded during the division of Berlin after the Second World War, as there was also a need for a zoo in the eastern part of the city. It opened in 1955 at Friedrichsfelde Palace. The Friedrichsfelde Palace, which was built in 1695, is located at the park originally designed by the landscape architect Peter Joseph Lenné. Since 2009, the palace belongs to Tierpark Berlin again. The gemeinschaft of the sponsors of "Tierpark und Zoo Berlin e.V." took over the supervision of the events which are held here, especially regular concerts.
