Voi Unit  February   13, 2010 Taveta was eager to investigate a dung beetle he had seen burrowing into an elephant dung ball. He prized open the dung ball using his trunk, when the dung beetle latched onto his trunk, causing him to panic and bellow for help. All the other elephants rushed to establish the cause of his problem, by which time the dung-beetle had become dislodged.

Emily and Edie and their entourage came to the Stockades in the evening, and with them was Burra, who had been absent for almost a year and had been last seen with Natumiís splinter group. Natumi herself along with Mukwaju, Aitong, Illingwezi and Tsavo were not with him. Burra had been apart from the other ex orphans so long that he appeared somewhat shy of his old friends, Seraa and Thoma, who were making a fuss of him. Meanwhile, Sweet Sally gently pushed little Eve away from her mother, Emily, and succeeded in this mission, escorting the baby to the Stockade water trough. All the ex orphans enjoyed a hand-out of Copra cake, and left the Stockade together at 7.20 p.m.
