Nursery Unit  June   26, 2016 Sana Sana is normally a gentle and quiet girl though when it is bottle feeding time she can show some aggression towards the other young ones like Ngilai, Ndotto and Lasayen. Today during public visiting she quickly drank her milk bottle and then rushed over to Ngilai yelling, whilst he was also having his bottle, and tried to hit him down and snatch the bottle he was drinking from. The keeper warned her away and said she had had her share, but as she walked away she bellowed loudly, clearly not satisfied by that! Her shouting drew the attention of the visiting public, who marveled at the similarity between these babies and human ones in age, behaviour and characters!

When the orphans were back in the forest again after their milk and that visiting time, Tusuja and Boromoko had a busy time sizing each other up and enjoying moments of charging and pushing each other which attracted Kiko’s attention, who started happily running in and out of the bushes in his own game. As the two elephants were trying to play, Kiko started running in between them, prompting them to end their game and start shouting at Kiko’s antics. Tusuja and Boromoko started running away when they saw Kiko running towards them very fast; the boys chose to return to browse close to their keepers where they thought Kiko would not bother them as much. It was quite funny to see Boromoko being afraid of Kiko, and the two boys ran towards the herd of orphans when Kiko started running towards the keepers as well!
