Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for BARSILINGA)
1/31/2015 - At around 9.30am, soon after the orphans had had their bottle feeds, Siangiki was let out to join them. The orphans eagerly awaited her, milling around outside her stockade until she walked out and was happily welcomed. Sandwiched between Arruba, Suswa, Mashariki, Oltaiyoni and Lentili, they touched and checked her out with their trunks. The boys, Kithaka, Barsilinga, Lemoyian and Tundani wanted to assert themselves and tried to be rough with her but the keepers warned them off. Settling down to browse Siangiki looked relaxed and peaceful with Oltaiyoni and Suswa staying close by her to comfort and reassure.
