Voi Unit  May   2, 2013 There is always a lot of competition over the supplements each morning when a Keeper has to stand between the bigger elephants - Lesanju, Wasessa, Sinya, Lempaute and Mzima and the smaller ones, so that the smaller elephants can get their fair share! It is humbling that one frail human can control 5 Big Elephants who tower over him and who are greedy for the supplements! Even one of the Junior Elephants could flatten him if they so wished! Once the Younger elephants have had their share, the Keeper stands aside, and the Big Elephants move rapidly in. Although Rombo is friendly with Taveta the two engaged in a vigorous Test of Strength while Kivuko separated herself from the rest of the herd. Dabassa whilst seeking his friend Layoni for a Match, inadvertently pushed Kivuko, who was furious with him, and forced him to race off, pursing him for a short distance in revenge. The rest of the day progressed normally.
