Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for SHUKURU)
7/30/2014 - The orphans settled at their usual Lucerne feeding spot in the morning after leaving the stockade. Several wild elephants were taking water at the stockade water trough when Orwa decided to go and join them. Upon reaching the bulls who were taking water, Orwa became unsure and just stood and watched them. Shukuru then came and joined the bulls and it was only then that Orwa got the courage to join them. When they had enough, the two returned to join their friends. At mud bath time, the juniors were joined by the ex-orphans and some wild elephants. They intermingled for some time before the orphans returned back to the browsing field leaving the ex-orphans and the wild elephants at the mud bath.
