Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ZONGOLONI)
2/26/2017 - It was a lovely morning until Lima Lima decided to cause some trouble for her keepers! The greedy baby came out of her stockade in the morning and went to chat to Alamaya and wrap her trunk around him, before proceeding to the hay store where she scooped up one bale of hay and pushed it to the ground for elephants to come and eat with her. The Keepers tried to shout but Lima Lima and Alamaya did not listen, and then Zongoloni also joined them which brought all the other babies! The keepers tried to stop the damage they were causing to the hay stores. Ziwa then started blowing loud trumpets and charging around in the bushes which caused even more chaos. He started vigorously pushing the acacia tree, which had a swarm of bees looking for nectar to make honey with. When the bees realised the tree was being pushed down they all came out looking for what was disturbing them. All the keepers and elephants ran for their lives when they saw the bees were angry and looking for the culprit!
