Nursery Unit  October   24, 2013 Oltaiyoni accepted milk eagerly during the night, and unlike Rorogoi was sufficiently friendly towards her human Keepers by the morning to be allowed out to join the other orphans, having only come in yesterday afternoon. As usual the little boys Lemoyian, Barsilinga, and Kithaka tried their luck to demonstrate superiority, but were put in line by the Big girls. Oltaiyoni behaved impeccably during the Public Viewing mudbath hour, and again at the Private Viewing slot at 3 p.m., hiding in amongst the older Elephants, outspread ears the only sign of slight disquiet. She is a lovely little girl!

Poor ailing Kwale took a turn for the worse today, refusing his milk feeds. He was returned to his stable and put on Life Support and received intravenous elephant Plasma, since his blood platelet count was low.
