Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   28, 2017 Lima Lima is a very greedy elephant and always wants to be fed ahead of the normal feeding times. She always keeps a close eye on the keepers when she sees them with the milk bottles and watches their every move. Because of the commotion that she causes the orphans are now fed before six in the morning as Lima Lima makes a fuss as soon as dawn starts to break.

Today Lima Lima was a in aparticularlynaughty mood and as soon as she had downed her bottles, instead of joining Alamaya as she normally does, she wentstraightfor the stores and grabbed a bale of hay running off with it. The keepers had to chase her and shout at her to get her to drop the bale so that they could put it in the wheelbarrow andtake it to the supplement feeding area. Lima Lima and Zongoloni were so impatient that they knocked over the wheelbarrow and started to feed on the hay. The rest of the orphans came to join them and as such the morning supplement feeding had to take place in adifferent area than normal.
