Nursery Unit  August   8, 2013 Although horrendously thin, Nelion was still on his feet in the morning, and was welcomed by all the resident elephants, who rushed to his Stockade to greet him, led by Kihari, Naipoki and Ishaq-B who had witnessed his arrival the previous night. All rumbled their greetings, to which he responded, quite obviously relieved to have elephant company. The 9 a.m. milk feed took place just outside his Stockade door, and he took his cue from the others, and accepted milk from a bottle himself which left all the Keepers extremely relieved and happy.
