Voi Unit  May   6, 2013 Today it was time again to clean and dress Shimba’s wounds, a procedure watched by Kenia and Ndii, who came to lay their trunks lovingly over his back once it was over to comfort him. Although Shimba has the longest tusks, despite the pain, he allows the Keepers to clean and dress his wounds, which is very humbling. He later enjoyed the Supplements with Panda, the others having left for the field to browse. The mudbath was given a miss today, it being too cool so browsing continued for the remainder of the day, ending up at the western foot of Mazinga hill.
