Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for MAXWELL)
7/17/2015 - Mwashoti and Boromoko were messing around this morning. When Boromoko was let out he went straight over the Mwashoti’s door which was still locked. He started playing around with the bucket which hangs outside Mwashoti’s door for his milk bottles, making a lot of noise. It was as if to say he had arrived and hurry up! Mwashoti started rumbling and pushing against his door, eager to join his friend having all the fun outside. To restore some peace and quiet his keeper opened the door. But it wasn’t to be. As soon as Mwashoti came out Boromoko put his head down, showing off. Then they started to wrestle which they did all the way down to Maxwell’s gate. Upon reaching Maxwell’s gate they abandoned this game and started trying to reach Maxwell through the bars with their trunks to try and wake him up. To begin with Max ignored them, but they carried on until he couldn’t ignore them anymore! Mwashoti and Boromoko started trumpeting and fanning their ears trying to scare Max, who in return pushed against his gate and charged at them so they would run away squealing and come back again for more fun. Max then started charging around in circles and jumping up and down (as well as a rhino can) in happiness. This game lasted for quite a while, until all three were tired and the elephants moved off into the forest for morning browsing, leaving Max in peace once more.
