Voi Unit  May   10, 2013 The Juniors left the Stockades for the browsing area earlier than usual today. Ex Orphans Emily, her calf Eve and Thoma and Icholta came ahead of the others to check on Shimba and Panda, Emily rumbling a greeting to Panda when she came for her milk, and stood beside her as she took it. The other Ex Orphans then arrived, Seraa also anxious to be with Panda who was being monopolized by Emily. Today only Big Boy Morani was with the females of Emily’s unit. As Emily watched little Eve enjoy a dustbath, Seraa and Thoma rushed forward to meet Shimba as he walked towards the compound to enjoy his milk and porridge. Meanwhile Ex Orphan Nanny Sweet Sally assisted by Irima, on the other side of the electric divider, were having a difficult time to prevent little Eve from jumping into the water trough again, something she did as a newborn the day Emily first brought her to meet the Keepers!

Out in the field the Juniors cooled themselves in a rainwater puddle by splashing water over their bodies, before moving to the Big Waterhole, where again Taveta and Tassia enjoyed a wrestling game, overseen by Kenia.
