Nursery Unit  October   5, 2011 On the way out into the bush Makireti and Dabassa engaged one another in a Pushing Bout. Dabassa enjoys challenging the bigger females in order to assert his dominance. Shukuru came to back up Makireti, and Dabassa had to surrender. By midday it was very hot, so as soon as the Orphans had downed their milk, they dashed into the mudbath and put on a spirited show for the audience of visitors and school children.

The spear wounds that Rombo had on arrival through one ear and into the neck have healed well, as has the spear wound that Kasigau had at the top of his trunk. Both bulls are gaining weight rapidly, and settling well into the Nursery routine.
