Oct 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka has donated two young female Indian elephants to the Prague zoo in Czech Republic as a mark of the International Children's Day.

The elephants, eight-year-old Janita and seven-year-old Tamara have left Sri Lanka today to Czech Republic in a special Sri Lankan Air Force military plane.

The two baby elephants are Sri Lanka's gift to the Prague Zoo and have come from the elephant orphanage in Pinnawala.

According to Czech media reports, the Prague Zoo in return will send two komodo dragons, two Przewalski horses and two young hippopotamuses to the Colombo zoo.

Prague Zoo officials have said that the new elephants will help the zoo's project to extend the genetic base of the European breeding of Indian elephants.
