Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ELEANOR)
7/5/2006 - The serious search for food occupied the orphans’ morning, it being too cool for a mudbath. Instead they all lined up to have a turn at scratching themselves against a stump worn smooth by this activity. Mpala waited patiently for Thoma to finish scratching, but Solango was impatient, and kicked her out. Feeling guilty because of this, he kept to himself for a while, only joining the others later, obviously fearing a reprisal! A wild family herd unit came past them, heading for the mudbath. The big female seemed very tame and looked very much like Eleanor. The configeration of her family suggested it could be Eleanor too. Mukwaju joined her, keen to interact with her wild calf and she was most accomodating. He remained with them for hours before coming to rejoin the other orphans, when Sosian and Nyiro rushed back to welcome him.
