Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for RAPSU)
7/12/2014 - For the second night, Tomboi and two wild bulls spent the night just outside the stockade. Soon after the orphans left their night stockades, Tomboi joined the juniors once more in feeding on Lucerne. Later they were joined by Yatta, Yetu, Ithumbah, Wendi, Kinna, Makena and Rapsu. At one time Yetu had a fight with Vuria and he had to flee because she easily defeated him. Later Yetu tried to push Shukuru, but Shukuru was stronger than her. The mud bath was quiet as no wild elephant or ex-orphan showed up. Only Shukuru, Laragai, Bongo, Mutara and Narok had a mud bath. Vuria opted to play by nose diving and rolling on the ground. The rest, after taking milk and water, returned back to the browsing field.
