3/23/2016 - As soon as the orphans had settled out in the field early this morning, as usual the older boys started their day with their pushing games. Mwashoti had a busy time playing with Tusuja. Rapa is still attached to Tusuja and when he saw him and Mwashoti challenging each other the little boy came charging up, trumpeting and breaking down bushes alongside the two boys, which encouraged Tusuja to challenge Mwashoti even more. Mwashoti was giving a good fight though and did not give up easily. Rapa continued, running up to the boys with his ears spread wide attempting to throw his trunk at Mwashoti and kick dust at him to confuse him in his fight with Tusuja, but both the boys fully concentrated on their game. Their game took a new turn however when two warthogs sped towards them and tore through the boys game as they chased one another. This frightened away Rapa, Mwashoti and Tusuja who ran away into the bushes rumbling and yelling towards their friends who were busy browsing. Their running did not disturb the other group and the three boys turned around again to run back to where the warthogs had run past them, charging and kicking and knocking down bushes. They spent a few minutes doing this before calming down and returning to join the others.
