Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   8, 2017 The babies went to the Chyulu Hills today at about midday. As the keepers and babies were walking home slowly, they came across a big python which had consumed a bushbuck and therefore could not move. The babies smelt it in advance and avoided it, taking a different path but the keepers were not aware of it and one keeper stepped over the python without realising. Mwashoti who was following behind, saw the python and stopped with his keeper. Mwashoti began to run away and the keepers shouted after him, worried he would get lost. The keepers were concerned that the python could jump up and scare the babies but luckily all escaped without incident. Alamaya and Ziwa returned to the stockades holding trunks like the good friends they are. Zongoloni pushed them apart, forcing Ziwa to his bedroom and leaving Alamaya to get his bottle feed.
