Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for SOKOTEI)
1/28/2016 - As all the orphans were going into the bush this morning, Sokotei and Boromoko started a lengthy pushing game that saw them be left far behind the others, as each one tried to dominate the other and win the play fight. In some of his attempts to win, Sokotei would go down on his forelegs to knock Boromoko over, without success. Then he would stand high on his back legs to try and scare Boromoko and still this did not work. He then even tried walking around the bushes and knocking and stamping them down to prompt Boromoko to turn away, and entwining trunks to assert his dominance. When none of these worked he then tried tricking Boromoko by attacking him and trumpeting at the same time but Sokotei just mounted on him Ė this in turn scared Boromoko and he ran away to seek refuge from Oltaiyoni, and that was the end of their game!
