Suriya was only one month old when he arrived at the ECC with his mother, Mae Ven. Suriya earned his name ("sun ray") when the mahouts found him picking sugar cane in a sunlit field. Being the first calf to arrive at the center, he has grown up fearless and can be a bit of a trouble maker on occasion.He is in great health and displays many desirable traits for herd leadership.
