Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for SALAMA)
1/19/2010 - As the orphans were approaching the northern slopes of Mazinga Hill, the Keepers were surprised to see Shira and Siria raising their trunks and rumbling as they ran round the corner of the hill. When the Keepers caught up with them they were surprised to find them with Emily and Edie and their entourage. All then fed together until it was mudbath time when they went together to the waterhole at noon, and there enjoyed a wonderful and joint bathing session, Lolokwe, Salama and Nyiro playing with Siria. Lolokwe and Salama grabbed the same piece of cloth floating on the water that Shimba had enjoyed, and likewise began striking it against the water, taking turn and turn about, whilst Icholta used a dry stick to scratch her belly. Laikipia and Salama engaged one another in a pushing match. Siria was having such a good time that he forewent his bottle of milk when it arrived in the Pickup, but took it later after all the action had finished. When the Youngsters left the Waterhole, Icholta remained with them for a while, but then rumbled and returned to Emily’s group who were moving towards the airstrip.
