Nursery Unit  June   10, 2016 The lions from the park continue to be seen in the forest which means that Kiko has not been out in the forest for the past few days out of fear that the lions may try to attack him. Today however, he accompanied the babies and Pea out to the bush.

Luggard who loves to browse was bringing up the rear of the group, walking just in front of Kiko. Once he got to the first bushes he stopped and started to feed on the vegetation where he was joined by his tall friend who was a bit anxious and was constantly looking around checking for signs of movement or anything unusual in the bushes. A few minutes later Kiko took off running back to the stockades where he felt safer and thus was much calmer.

While heading to the public visit today Ndotto, Lasayen and Sana Sana were all together with Ndotto in the lead. As they walked Ndotto would move ahead and would then stop to let Lasayen catch up to him at which point he would turn and gently push Lasayen. Once they got to the mudbath he let Lasayen overtake him but did not allow Sana Sana to pass. Each time Sana Sana tried to get past him he would push her and she cried out in frustration which brought the keepers coming to her assist her, making sure that she was able to get by him and get to her milk bottle.


Kiko had to go to his stockade
