Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   3, 2017 Jasiri and Faraja together with their friend Ziwa were in a mischievous mood today and right after the noon milk bottle feed at the mudbath they began a mounting game where they would take turns mounting one another. Mwashoti watched their game and then tried to mount Sonje while Alamaya tied to mount Zongoloni.

Following the mudbath the orphans made their way back to the browsing fields where they were joined by some wild elephants. The keepers made sure to keep their distance so that the orphans could enjoy interacting with their wild friends. Zongoloni seemed to want to stay with her wild peers as both her and Faraja were having a lovely time playing strength testing games with the wild elephants from their age group. Alamaya and Lima Lima did all they could to entice the two away and in the end Lima Lima succeeded in leading them back to the keepers.

When babies returned to the stockades in the evening only some of them finished their both their milk bottles while others had one bottle and then started picking up the Lucerne pellets that they found on the ground.


Limalima takes a break from the heat
