Nursery Unit  June   30, 2016 When the babies walked out into the forest today to meet the older orphans they were welcomed by all of them especially the big females. Oltaiyoni happily walked over and greeted her adopted baby Ambo as Mbegu came over too and showed great concern and interest in Ambo too. Mbegu walked up and down and was quite restless as she appeared to want to take Ambo away all for herself, rumbling and putting her trunk in his mouth, but Ambo was showing great interest in Oltaiyoni and didnít seem to want to leave her side. When Oltayoni realised Mbegu was trying to take Ambo away she walked Ambo away from Mbegu and the rest of the group. Poor Mbegu who loves to socialize with the babies started bellowing, and this lasted for quite a few minutes! She then stopped and realised the other babies were there and she happily attached herself to them. Ambo, who is always happy when attached to the older orphans, spent the morning hours with the older group browsing shoulder to shoulder with his beloved Oltaiyoni. He only left the group when the older ones had to leave for their 11am bottle of milk.
