8/30/2015 - Sonje and Murera took on the leadership from the young Lima lima to lead all the babies to the forests following the paths that led them to the water spring to quench their thirst. After drinking water from the springs, Sonje kept on walking to browse, as Murera was also walking around patiently looking for greener bushes. Murera continued walking around the bushes and came across a rock hyrax which seemed to have lost its way and where the rocky areas were within the Kibwezi forest. When it was time to go wallowing, Ngasha was leading before he was overtaken by Faraja who was competing with him to be the first to open the wallowing session. From there, Ziwa, who is turning out to be a strong and active baby boy, ran away to start dusting. Sonje was trying to blow very big dust on her back to chase away the horrid teste flies that were biting her.
