Only 1% of elephant births are twins.

A rare birth of a twin elephant occurred this week in a national reserve in northern Kenya.

The two children, a boy and a girl, and their mother Bora were first seen by tour guides on a safari in the Samburu Reserve over the weekend.

They are only the second pair of twin cubs found by the local conservation organization Save the Elephants.

The charity says twins account for just 1% of elephant births, with the last known case recorded in 2006.
