Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for MAXWELL)
8/14/2014 - Immediately after the orphans walked out of their stockades this morning Balguda and Barsilinga greeted each other by pushing heads, this gained Nelion’s attention and he to tried to join too. Nelion has the largest tusks out of all the elephants and is highly respected, consequently as soon as he tried to join in to play Balguda and Barsilinga stopped their game so that they wouldn’t get hurt. Nelion then became quite irritated as no one wanted to play with him, instead turning on Balguda and pushing poor Balguda on his hind legs. Nelion’s tusks then poked Balguda, luckily not piercing the skin but still hurting enough for Balguda to cry in pain. The keepers quickly intervened and sent Nelion off into the forest as punishment for what he had done. Nelion ran into the bush feeling very embarrassed but shortly afterwards he sneaked back into the herd feeling very sorry for himself.
