Nursery Unit  October   15, 2013 “Asanje” was allowed out today to join the others, the Big Girls crowding into her Stockade the moment the Gate was opened up. Sandwiched between the Big Girls she walked out, Naipoki, Kihari, Ishaq-B, Sonje and Narok showing great concern for her. Little Boys Lemoyian, Barsilinga, Kithaka and Ngasha jointly tried to take advantage of the fact that she was new, trying to throw their weight around, but Naipoki, Kihari and Sonje protected her. At the Public Viewing hour, however, Asanje was visibly nervous of the crowds, and fearing that she might be tempted to charge, the Keepers enticed her away with a bottle of milk. The same happened at the 3 p.m Private Viewing slot, when she was taken back to join the older group but when the older elephants came to the Private Viewing, she was comfortable in amongst them.
