Nursery Unit  April   16, 2016 Out during the public viewing hour the first group of orphans had drunk their bottles and was busy competing over the greens that had been put out for them. Lasayen was seen happily posing beside one of the water troughs; using the top of the trough to scratch his belly with his trunk high in the sky enjoying the water pouring out of the trough on either side, and the applause he was getting too. As the public cheered him on playful Lasayen changed his game and sat right in the water trough with his hind legs right inside as he scratched, making even more water spill out! This game attracted his friend Ndotto who came running over and head-butted him in the water trough which drew even more laughs from the public; what a pair!
