Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   24, 2017 Today Alamaya was in a naughty mood and turned on his friend Zongoloni engaging her in a pushing game. He pushed Zongoloni harder and harder with Zongoloni doing her best not to be rough with her younger friend. While they played Zongoloni mistakenly touched Alamaya’s tail, something that he hates, which made him seek assistance from Ziwa to win the strength testing game.

We have noticed that lately Alamaya and Mwashoti have become little fighters. They are often seen trying to mount Sonje and Lima Lima whenever they see the two girls lying down. If the matriarchs stop the little boys from mounting them they get angry and start pushing the girls hard with their bottoms showing their frustration at not being allowed to do what they like.

During the night a leopard came to visit the stockades and the orphans who were in their night quarters. The keepers were all quite relaxed until they heard the baboons shouting the alarm, notifying everyone that a leopard was nearby. The bushbucks were also on high alert moving around and the orphans started banging on the gates to get the keepers to come out and watch over them until the leopard left.
