Nursery Unit  August   26, 2017 Today when Kiko came out into the field in the early morning he was lucky enough to be welcomed by some wild giraffes who had 3 young ones around his own age. Kiko only spotted them when they were already quite close and he began to walk towards them as they walked towards him too. When the young giraffes had almost reached him however Kiko decided to turn around and walk away, but the young giraffes followed him as he walked around and around a thicket trying to avoid contact with them. Then when Kiko saw the adult giraffes approaching him he sprinted away and made for the direction where the baby elephants were browsing. He watched them approaching from there but then the wild giraffes were scared away by Rapa, Maramoja, Ndotto, Lasayen and Pare who charged at them. When the giraffes ran away Kiko ran back towards the stockades.
