Nursery Unit  July   3, 2017 Today the young girls, Godoma, Malkia, Tagwa and Esampu, were fighting over who should get to baby sit Musiara. Malkia did not want anyone to browse with him except Mbegu. Esampu, Tagwa and Kuishi were driven away but Godoma she just blocked from getting close to him; she knows her position in the hierarchy of the herd and would not challenger her.
Murit was a bit naughty during the public visit today and was in a very strange mood as he kept trying to bite his friends tails! He moved from one to the other but kept trying to bite Malima and Enkesha and it reached a point where Godoma had to intervene and block him from approaching any others. Esampu also tried to snatch Tamiyoi’s milk bottle which annoyed the short little girl and she left her milk bottle for awhile to sort Esampu out, before returning to finish the rest.

As the Head Keeper gave his talk during this visit, Jotto was busy trying to find where the voice was coming out of the strange looking speakers. He kept inspecting and trying to pick it up so the keepers had to move it as he was so interested.
All the orphans from the baby Musiara to the matriarch Mbegu enjoyed a lengthy mud bath today, all except for Kauro who does not really enjoy them, no matter how hot it is!
