Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ISHANGA)
1/27/2016 - This morning was all about sharing. Kithaka shared his food with Kanjoro, Barsilinga with Vuria, Laragai with Teleki, Bomani with Narok and Kainuk with Turkwel. Kithaka and Garzi then participated in a strength testing warm-up exercise, Teleki and Shukuru did some soil dusting. Barsilinga happened to pass by close to Shukuru and she threatened to push him away by raising her head high with ears spread out. Barsilinga changed direction and met with Turkwel where the two locked trunks before Barsilinga pulled himself away and went to resume browsing. Lemoyian engaged Bomani in a pushing game; when the game was apparently over, Lemoyian followed Bomani slowly behind and when the opportunity presented itself he attempted to mount climb on Bomani’s back. Mutara and Suguta joined the orphans at Kanziku area. It appears that Ishanga has abandoned the two and jumped into another group again. It seems that Ishanga will never have a permanent group or even form her own; if she does perhaps it will only be with her own children.
