Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   3, 2017 Overnight some buffaloes came around the stockades looking for water to drink and then they had some of the left over lucerne. After finishing the lucerne they walked around for a bit, which upset Murera because she could smell them but not see them very well and what they were up to. She did not want anything to hurt her babies Mwashoti and Alamaya.

At 11am at the bottle feeding point all the babies ran towards their milk very fast, all wanting to be the first to have their milk. Alamaya is the third elephant to be feeding on his own, able to grab and hold his own bottle from the ground like Jasiri and Zongoloni always do. Alamaya enjoyed his bottle, holding onto it very tight with his short trunk, but when Mwashoti arrived he had to be fed by a keeper. Quanza and Faraja wallowed in the water and rubbed their big bellies on some wooden posts after to scratch some insects off their skin.
