Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for MAXWELL)
9/19/2014 - There was a lot of commotion last night at around 2am when Maxwell brought down one of his stockade walls. The termites must have undermined the posts somewhere. During the night the keepers heard this tremendous thud, and when they went to find out what had happened they saw Maxwell confused by the fallen wall. The keepers quickly acted and called Robert and Angela, we all tried every possible solution to try get Maxwell back into the smaller stockade, not even the sugar cane worked, but it was no use he just didn’t want to. After having a look around the stockade trying to figure out why Maxwell had done this, it was spotted a lump of hippo dung located just outside his stockade. Rhinos are extremely territorial and obviously this hippo had taken a step too far into Maxwell’s territory.
