Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for MAXWELL)
11/30/2014 - Most of the baby eles enjoy Maxwell’s Lucerne and as such they all gather at this stockade door in the morning to have some of his rations. This morning Arruba, Mashariki, Rorogoi, Barsilinga and Kithaka were all busy feeding on the Lucerne while Faraja and Jasiri played with Kauro and Mbegu. Jasiri would run directly at Kauro and head butt him before doing a quick turn around and running away as Kauro gave chase. Faraja lay down on the ground so that Mbegu could climb over him. This afternoon it rained heavily with lots of thunder and lightning, scaring the orphans who scattered into the bushes. The keepers were able to round up all the orphans bar Ziwa who had taken off into the park. A search was mounted but by 8pm there was still no sign of Ziwa. The keepers returned to the stockades hoping that Ziwa would be ok on his own, sure that they would be able to find him at daybreak.
