Once out in the field Shimba and Taveta engaged one another in a Test of Strength which broke off when they turned to charge two Klipspringers who were on a nearby rock. Siria came alone to join the Juniors, and showed a soft spot for Layoni, remaining close to him even after the others had headed off to the Big Waterhole. One Keeper remained behind to ensure that Siria didnít go off with Layoni, but after about l0 minutes Siria escorted him instead to take his milk. Today Dida occupied a central position in the Waterhole and later enjoyed a scratching game with Emsaya, Wasessa and Kivuko. Having seen the Juniors back to their Stockades, Siria headed towards the Pipeline area, no doubt to meet up with the Ex Orphan Group.
