Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   11, 2017 Leopards were present around the stockades again today, although they are no threat to the babies the elephants still do not like their presence. They wandered next to Zongoloni and Quanza’s bedrooms which prompted loud noises from the elephants and worried the keepers who were resting after a long walk with the babies from the Chylulu Hills. The keepers immediately came outside to look around, Lima Lima and Zongoloni were pushing at their gates to get to Alamaya and make sure he was alright. The keepers tried all that they could to warn off the leopards, making loud noises which were joined by Sonje and Murera trumpeting. The leopards responded back and charged at the trees to see where all the noise was coming from.

In the morning when all the babies had got up and ready for the day, the boys Ngasha, Ziwa and Jasiri walked out with Quanza to the bushes alongside the springs area. Quanza soon turned back as she came across some army ants on the path and was concerned about them going up her trunk and giving her a bite.
