Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ZURURA)
2/3/2017 - Finally Turkwel and Kainuk have found their group and came to spend the night just outside the stockade. In the morning the group, led by Mutara, joined the juniors for lucerne. After feeding on lucerne, Mutara and her group escorted the juniors to the browsing field and parted ways an hour later. The orphans had a peaceful morning and at mud bath time, they were joined by Half Trunk and his two friends. One of the bulls was hostile to the orphans and at one point tried to chase the juniors from the water trough, but the keepers shouted at him. Half Trunk walked down to have a mud bath as Sokotei stood close by, admiring his mud bathing skills. Shukuru, Kamok and Enkikwe had a brief wallowing exercise before joining their friends who had gone to drink the clean water at the water trough. In the afternoon, the orphans relaxed under some trees to hide from the scorching sun.
