Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ROI)
8/31/2016 - The day has been very cold since morning and this has meant most of the little ones have had their blankets all day. Jotto, Ambo, Tamiyoi, Pare and Luggard have all been wearing blankets since morning. The extra big ball was brought out for the orphans during public visiting today but the first group paid no attention to it. Out of the older orphans it was only Tusuja who had seen it before, it was new to the other 8 who had not seen it the other day. Kamok and Roi liked the ball so much and they had a great game with the ball, kicking it around with their hind legs. Kamok emerged as the best kicker out of them! When she kicked it into the mud pool though, it was Roiís duty to go in to get it out, which she did very well with the help of the keepers too. Tusuja still did not like the ball though and always moved away from it, and the same for Naseku. When the ball came to Oltaiyoni she tried to destroy it with her tusks! The keepers tried to stop it but at last when Roi missed a kick from Kamok Oltaiyoni got the ball again and poked her tusks into it and that was the end of that!
