Nursery Unit  June   2, 2016 As the orphans were exiting their stockades this morning Pea joined the group which is rare as Pea normally prefers to be in the company of Kiko and the baby group. Once out in the browsing field some of the orphans settled to browse while others like Naseku, Kauro, Rapa, Tusuja, Mbegu and Dupotto charged around, running in and out of the bushes to welcome the new day.

Pea, who just watched the orphans playing at first, decided to join in and started spinning around, wings spread, having fun with the orphan elephants. Upon seeing what Pea was doing Naseku and Dupotto took to charging at the ostrich, making her run off so that she could get as far away as possible from the charging youngsters. The two girls gave chase but were not able to catch up to Pea and thus took to bush bashing to show their disappointment at not having been able to catch Pea.

The girls bashing around caught the attention of Kauro who joined the two. He did however have a different motive in mind and started to chase Naseku, grabbing her by the tail in an effort to get her to slow down so that he could play with her. His efforts were brought to a quick end when Naseku cried out for help, which brought Oltaiyoni running to her rescue and taking her away from Kauro’s antics.


Pea joined the older orphans this morning
