6/17/2014 - Young elephants have individual characters and personality traits, similar to those of human children. One day they are good friends, but the next they are not! Some like to have one special friend whilst others enjoy having lots of different friends. Some have a love / hate relationship, which is similar to the sort of friendship Lemoyian and Sokotei have! Lemoyian sometimes wants nothing more than to play and frolick with Sokotei but on other occasions he pushes, butts and even charges Sokotei! Today, whilst the orphans were enjoying their greens at the mud bath area Lemoyian went over to Sokotei and pushed him away forcing him into the ticket. Barsilinga, who was enjoying himself in the mud wallow saw the interaction and jumped to Sokotei’s rescue. He got out of the mud wallow, separated the two and charged at Lemoyian, pushing him off and out of the way, saving his little friend Sokotei from a boisterous Lemoyian.
