Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for CHYULU)
12/29/2016 - It was the first morning in Ithumba for Oltaiyoni, Kamok and Roi. They didn't know where to exit but they followed their new friends who showed them the way. Roi and Oltaiyoni were completely at ease but Kamok wanted to stay close to her keepers. In the bush Lemoyian engaged Boromoko in a pushing game that ended when Lemoyian attempted to mount on Boromoko. Garzi came across a suitable tree that he used to scratch his belly on. Roi could not stretch her trunk as high as Oltaiyoni and resulted to picking the leaves from Oltaiyoni’s mouth, which Oltaiyoni was picking from high up on a tree. Boromoko settled close to Kamok and had a brief conversation that was done inform of touching one another. Enkikwe came across a tree stump that was low enough to scratch his lower belly. Later Oltaiyoni settled to feed close to Shukuru and attempted to engage Shukuru into a strength testing exercise. Shukuru didn't take this act of disrespect lightly and disciplined Oltaiyoni for daring to want to push her just because she is thin at the moment. Shukuru pushed Oltaiyoni so hard she screamed and this warned her not to repeat such a childish act of behavior again.
