Nursery Unit  October   13, 2006 Being a Friday, it was the day when all the Nursery elephants are anointed with coconut oil to keep their skin in good shape. Shimba enjoyed this very much, and having been covered in oil, took a dustbath, following the example of Makena. The Keepers had difficulty oiling Chyulu and Lenana, who ran off as soon as they spotted the cans and the bucket.
