Tiny sengi twins born at Chester Zoo



Two adorable African sengis have been born at Chester Zoo.

The tiny twins – also known as round-eared elephant shrews – have been nicknamed Ping and Pong by zookeepers, as they are currently no bigger than table tennis balls.

Sengis grow to a maximum size of just four inches (10cm) and weigh no more than 45 grams. But, despite their small stature, the animals have an incredible genetic link to manatees, aardvarks and elephants!
