Voi Unit  May   2, 2017 The orphans exited their stockade full of energy and downed their milk before enjoying some supplement feeding after which they headed to the browsing grounds under Naipoki and Kihariís leadership. The orphans browsed in single file throughout the day, linking up with a few members of Lesanjuís herd in the evening.

Kivuko, Lempaute, and Layoni arrived at the stockade ten minutes before the juniors. Dabassa joined the stockade dependant orphan elephants as they made their way to the stockade, running behind Rorogoi who was busy trying to get to her milk as quickly as she could and was suspicious of Dabassa, thinking he might want to steal her share. Lempaute demanded Pandaís milk bottle which meant that the keepers had to come in and prevent her from taking something that wasnít hers.

Lempaute then tried to get close to Araba while Ndii protested loudly, holding Araba tightly with her trunk. Lempaute saw that she would not be successful in her attempts to get Araba and went for a scratching session instead. The four seniors remained at the stockade until 7pm when they returned to the park.
