8/11/2014 - Layoni and Rombo began to wrestle each other this morning in the stockade compound and Tassia brought his new friend Dabassa to watch these two elephants fight.
Sinya however stood close by to supervise these two naughty elephants to prevent anyone getting hurt. Panda introduced a game of scooping and tossing huge chunks of dust into the air, she was then joined by Ndii, Kenia and Kihari who all joined in to play this new game. Taveta instead decided to test his own strength by pushing and breaking down trees.
The orphans arrived at the water hole at noon. Kivuko was playing in the mud bath when Taveta went and held Kivuko's trunk as if congratulating her for her exemplary performance. They then browsed near the water hole for the rest of the day.
Kihari and Naipoki paced far ahead of the other orphans when heading home, it seemed that they were very excited to be going back to the stockades this evening.
