2/14/2015 - Lualeni, Taita, Ololoo and Makena joined the juniors in the morning. Bomani welcomed Makena and Taita by stretching his trunk towards them. Bomani and Garzi were respectful to Taita, stepping aside to let him pass. Ololoo had a brief strength testing exercise with Orwa before Taita intervened and pushed the two boys away. Shukuru, Bomani and Turkwel had scratched on rocks before leaving to browse. An hour later, Ololoo, Lualeni and Taita departed, leaving Makena to lead the juniors to the mud bath where Kanjoro, Shukuru, Laragai, Bongo, Teleki, Vuria and Narok had along wallow. The rest opted for soil dusting. After soil dusting, Orwa went to scratch against a nearby tree but Makena then wanted to scratch on use the same tree so Orwa had no option but to give way to her. After Makena, Teleki stepped in and also scratched for some time. The afternoon was hot and all the orphans converged under a tree to hide from the scorching sun. In the evening, the orphans went past the mud bath for an evening wallow.
