Nursery Unit  April   9, 2016 Boromoko and Roi had a happy playful time out in the bush this morning. Whilst out in the forest these two invaded the territory of two little dik diks. There were about 6 pairs of them and they seemed to be sleeping in the same area. The two orphans starting flushing them out of their hide by pushing trees, pulling short bushes and trumpeting and rumbling to scare the dik diks out. The little animals got up running in every direction, confused about which direction to go in. Boromoko and his team mate Roi were behind them, not giving them a break at all! It was a relief for the dik diks when some baboons emerged from nowhere jumping in the trees. When Boromoko and Roi heard this noise in the tree and not seeing what it was they started running back to their keepers in fright. This attracted the attention of all the other babies who were browsing nearby who also ran to the keepers for safety from what, they did not know. After the keepers had restored the peace and assured them they were safe, Oltaiyoni and Sokotei turned back to see what had caused the mayhem amongst the babies. They came across the baboons and drove them all away.
