Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for SONJE)
11/28/2013 - Sonje has taken to mothering little Oltaiyoni. Every morning, as soon as the orphans are let out of their Night Stockades, Sonje walks to Oltaiyoni’s stable and waits by the door until Oltaiyoni emerges. When Oltaiyoni senses Sonje’s presence, she rumbles happily from inside and when she comes out, she enjoys sucking Sonje’s ears and under the neck. Whenever the younger elephants are separated from the bigger ones, the Keepers have a hard time persuading Sonje to be away from Oltaiyoni. Previously Sonje loved Lemoyian, and now that she has switched her affections to Oltaiyoni, Lemoyian tries to bully Oltaiyoni, being jealous.
