Nursery Unit  August   25, 2017 This morning the elephants were very relaxed and calm as they walked out to the forest and not in their usual active and playful mood. Playful Ndotto, Lasayen, Ngilai, Kauro and Pare who are normally the most active ones on the walk out the forest, were very calm and subdued today as well.

When it was time for the 11am milk feed the first group of orphans ran down for their milk. When Jotto and Malima reached the open area before the feeding place they started to compete who would be the first to reach their milk bottle. Neither one wanted to be last and when they reached the mud wallow Malima got ahead of Jotto but Jotto caught her by the front leg with his trunk which brought her to a walk, bellowing alongside Jotto as she fought to get free of him. Jotto did not let go and both walked up to the feeding area with Jotto still holding on tight, up until they both reached their bottles! It was a very funny first sight to behold for the visitors that day.


Pare is a quiet browsing mood
