Ex Orphan Lualeni came to join the Juniors in the morning at the Stockade. Narok and Laragai remained close to her, Narok putting her trunk to Lualeniís mouth. Lualeni then escorted the Juniors out to the field, and when she left both Narok and Laragai were very unsettled, constantly running off into the bush rumbling. At 11 a.m. Sities led the first milk dependent Juniors to the mudbath, where Laragai and Narok ran off again, followed by the rest of the orphans. The Keepers tried to follow but only traced one group, later catching up with the rest, namely Laragai, Narok, Mutara, Sities, Turkwel, Kainuk and Kilabasi, returning them to the Stockades late in the evening.
