After a morning spent browsing intensively, Lempaute lay down intending to take a nap. Mzima interpreted this action as an invite to play and proceeded to climb on Lempaute’s back. After realizing this was not Lempaute’s intention Mzima lay near her before engaging Kenia in a soil dusting game. At the noon mudbath Siria lay on top of Mzima in the water causing him discomfort. Wasessa came to Mzima’s rescue pushing Siria off who was not deterred and tried to entice Mzima to play ‘boys games’.
